Better than a Selfie

A professional portrait is better than a selfie if you are trying to make an impression.  Business profiles deserve the professional touch.  A selfie sends the wrong message to potential clients.

Mutual Respect

There is a rule in my studio.  It is called the Rule of Mutual Respect.  This is what it means…

If I ask someone to pose a certain way for a photo, and they say they don’t want to, I won’t ask again.  On the other hand, if they ask me to photograph them a certain way, and I don’t want to, they don’t ask again.

Only a Distraction

Someone said color is only a distraction when it comes to good photography.  I put my camera in black and white mode and went out taking pictures.  It’s true.  You pay more attention to composition and lighting when shooting in B&W.  Color is a distraction.

Distinguishing Feature

The distinguishing feature between a good photographer and a mediocre photographer is the placement of the hands. The hands of the subject tell the whole story. If the hands aren’t right, it’s a bad portrait. Plain and simple.
