Behind the scenes photos or videos can give you a good look at what we do to get that amazing senior picture. I tried a new technique with a few sessions using a goPro attached to my camera to show a more true behind the lens view.
This fall session for Snigda was perfect weather for her senior pictures. Although fall leaves can bring such beautiful color to your photos, it can also present lack in color from the many leaves that have fallen already. The sun can shine through trees more with less shade, but using the sun in the right way really helps on fall days.
I used this this short bridge or wooden walkway to accent the denim jacket outfit that Snigda wore. I also used the sun as backlight to avoid harsh shadows and squinting if facing the sun. Always with a reflector, I can bounce that light back onto Snigda making her look radiant. A big shout out to her BFF who assisted with these senior pictures. LOVE having volunteer assistants!!
Take a look at this short video snippet of a behind the scenes look at one photograph we created. Her mom commented that she looks like a model and I would have to agree!!
For the photographers out there, looking back I kept adjusting to accommodate the small details I noticed as I was shooting. I needed to adjust for the post behind her feet, the sliver of light that kept peaking onto her cheek, and just looking for a more relaxed look. If you look further, I removed the ugly green trash can in the background and knew that going into the shoot. I find that by taking my time to get it right in camera makes for an amazing final portrait.
