Photographers impel spectators into a dynamic head-turning environment inspired by a truly unique itinerary; nature.

It takes more than a camera to fill a gallery with art worth contemplating. It takes an eye-an eye that is seemingly dispossessed of the world around it, yet in actuality intricately attuned to that very world.


A world of individuals.


Although each person has a unique vision of surroundings, the professional photographer uses both tenacity and technology to contribute a new paradigm.


Whether the photographer displays his work in a gallery or online, the customized touches of a professional photographer make the difference between a work of art and a mediocre family keepsake.



Split second photos that will never again manifest themselves.


The main idea here is usually to hold a reflector against the dark sides of a subject and the end result is a good photograph turned great. Most of them are usually best used with other sources of lighting, such that the light that bounces off a subject is reflected back to it.

Photo lighting is crucial to the attainment of certain photographic goals and as a result good digital photography tips demand that a flash can also be used, in the spirit of trying to attain a perfect work of photography.


Here a flash is a source of light that is usually found on a camera, it can also be mounted though, and it produces artificial light simultaneously as the camera's shutter closes. It is one of thee commonest methods through which photographic lighting styles are achieved. Depending on the angle that the camera is held in relation to the subject, the flash can be used to bring out loads of photographic effects that will either render the photo a success or some shoddy work.

When it comes to shooting make sure your subjects are in place. If it is still photography ensure that your subject does not move around as because if they do you will end up having blurry photos which are a sore to the eyes. After you have positioned your subjects look at the camera to see whether the subjects are in good place.

The Look for photo / model shaping


The manner in which your model gives her/his facial expressions can go a long way in shaping your photos.


A bland, emotionless expression might not look good. A slight smile, an off-camera look or even a cover tilt of the head can produce a far better and visually pleasing image than one where the model is giving a straight emotionless look at the camera.


As a portrait photographer a majority of times you will come across models who are not professionals and therefore have no clue about how to pose or give a facial expression. To make matters worse, they would be tensed facing up to a camera.


A good portrait photographer always brings out the best in his/her models. It is the job of the photographer to break the ice and to ease the mind of a nervous model.


As they say, 80% of the energy of a portrait photographer him/her on setting up the model, speaking to him/her and preparing him/her for the shot.

Only spent 20% of your time making the actual photos.






For full body portraits, the best option is not to shoot with too wide a lens. Wide angle lenses are affected by distortions, especially at the corners and edges.

Wide angle lenses will make your model look weird. With a wide angle lens, you cover a lot of the scene. As a result, you have to move in close in order to get a tight shot. That is what creates distortions.

Another reason to avoid a wide zoom lens is they are difficult to work with in small studios.


The best choice is something like a 50-70mm. On the other hand, with tele lenses, you have to stand too far away in order to crop out negative space. That means your subject will be compressed against a background.






Between a wide-angle zoom and a telephoto, however, choose the latter. The look is a lot more natural with a telephoto. And always shoot from a distance and zoom in rather than use the widest focal length and shoot from a close distance.
