Tips to create stunning Portrait Photographs


With Photography I understand that although perfection cannot be attained (well because we are human), better pictures is very possible. Consistent practice is the key, I do not mean consistently just shooting anything, think of a concept (literally anything) and design several ways to bring it to life.

Some people draw an image with a pen and pencil, create the shades and colors on paper, then take the picture, however there is a huge amount of photographers out there that cannot draw. Hence there is no harm in pull out a story board with words;  you have to create a process in your mind or on paper before the last picture.

ON days you take bad pictures or you have a dissatisfied client, NEVER let that eat you up, just spend more free time practicing. You can only get better, not worse. I enjoy portrait photography (sometimes), because I feel the human eye is a gate way to the soul and YES! there are tips to creating stunning portrait photographs
