We had a fun photo shoot yesterday out by the vintage Studebaker at the Design House.
I thought it might be a good idea to give folks a little inspiration on how to shoot fun holiday pictures that are unique. I love photos that are more of a scene in a movie, than a posed, everyone is staring at the camera, deer in the headlights scenario. It’s ok to be different…it’s actually quite fun, to come up with a scene, and then act it out. I’m calling our scene….”Holiday Road Trip.”
Figure out how many people are going to be in the picture and decide what their role is…
take loads of pictures, then crop them differently to showcase different parts of the scene…
dress accordingly….. this is a very vintage scene, if you are wearing a purple pantsuit, its not going to work, no matter how good the photos are….
in our case….of course Henry was repairing the flat, Kim was his impatient wife, who by the way did not want her face in the photo, so for her, this was the perfect portrait. Remember, a portrait is supposed to be a great representation of a person….not reflecting perfection in a persons physical beauty, but a representation of who they are. Of course Amy and Diana are the movie star passengers, impatient but understanding, and Jack is the ever patient hobo, hoping he can score a ride when the flat is fixed.
There are so many options with all that our gizmos have to offer its pretty much without limits what you can achieve
I hope you have enjoyed our fun photo tips…. Have a happy Thanksgiving, and come join us this weekend to shoot you own great, unique holiday pics.
