Senior Photographer Featured On A National Blog
I'm excited to announce that one of my outdoor sessions was just published on a national blog, BelovelyYou! This is my second publication with this blog and I'm pretty excited about it. Click here to take a look at the new featured post.
I submitted the outdoor session because I wanted to give some tips on photographing tall subjects. Maggie is almost 6' tall and I love how she owns that. She is a gorgeous young woman, full of confidence and willing to experiment with posing. I've known the family since my stepdaughter played soccer with Maggie many years ago and I enjoyed working with them this past year.
Maggie's sessions were featured on my blog a few weeks ago. Here is the link to that, if you'd like to read it.
BelovelyYou has a little unique spin on what they publish. They do all sorts of non-wedding sessions (maternity, engagement sessions, newborn, family, seniors) but their readers are generally photographers and the idea is to post tips along with the session.
Prior to all my senior sessions, I give a lot of thought to the equipment I'll need to take and what my general plan is. Yes, I do go with the flow a lot, but it's important for me to give the session some structure, too. For this session, I knew I needed to bring a stepstool because I'm of average height. I definitely did not want to have the camera angle such that I was looking up at her. When you photograph up, you make your subject appear larger. This can work in some circumstances, but definitely not for senior girls. I know of no senior girl who wants to look larger. So I photograph girls at eye level or downward. This means giving some thought to posing and positioning and sometimes bringing a stepstool, as I did for this session.
I hope you enjoyed the Belovely You article! Thank you for reading!
