12 Inspirations of Portrait Photography
Whenever you are going to take portrait photos, please remember to look into this blog again. It might help you a little …………..
1. Working with PhotoShop
The wonderful latter part of work might bring you lots of new ideas, especially to cover the shortage of digit photography in color range and itself. Of course, the latter part of work in black & white is also very important for films.
2. Recording Wrinkles
If your target has very deep wrinkles, or the other factors of texture, it might brighten your pictures a lot.
In the light background, over-exposure will effect very special feeling – especially when the strong contrast between light and shadow existing in images.
4. Reducing exposure
For the images with most space in black, reducing exposure may stand the bright part, like cheek.
The shape of hair will surprise you a lot in backlighting.
Get crazy with the pose and positioning — extra points if it looks uncomfortable. Not only with the poses, but also with your own positioning — shot from different angles to achieve different impacts.
7. Culture Atmosphere
Special cultural surrounding and atmosphere is really interesting for your pictures.
Make use of different surfaces to add that extra dimension — windows, mirrors, and water are all very good reflective surfaces that give a different result and texture.
9. Showing shadows
Photography is the art of light, the nature is the are of shadow too.
10. Close-up Shot
If the angle is correct, a close-up of portrait’s face will impress everyone – lips, eyes, hair…….
Out-of-focus subjects can be more interesting than the in-focus subjects. It kind of adds some mystery to the image because you can’t quite make out who that person is.
12. Catching the moment
Well, please look into Antoine D’Agata’s pictures, which explain this perfectly.
