As an avid photographer, I went through different phases in my photography journey. Starting off from travel photography to events photography, I was soon exploring the art of portrait photography, both indoors and outdoors.
The recent solemnisation photoshoot of James & Shirley gave me another round of outdoor portrait photography, more experienced and able to get the couple to do different poses and themes. An area that I am slowly improving, small breakthrough from my previous outdoor photoshoot of Wen Liang and Portia.
Recently, I read PopPhoto and found an article on “The Art of Gisele“, this was about an exclusive 30th Anniversary Showcase for PopPhoto ! Dropping inside to read and view the photography works of Gisele Bundchen, it gives a great insight on the art and techniques of indoor portrait photography, styles and positioning. That’s always something you can learn from looking at how the photos were taken and I would strive to reach that standard one day, either on a professional or passion basis.
I had asked a few friends before, to become my volunteer models to do a portrait photoshoot in studios, giving me an opportunity to hone my photography skills to another level.
Any volunteers ?
Oh, I hope you were here.
We took such theme portrait photoshoots before, I know some good models. They really have camera feeling.
A good model is very important to a good photograther. 🙂
Shooting theme portraits would be my next photography portfolio. Hope to get some friends and do it soon !
Yes, good photogenic models are a lot easier for photographers to work with !
I agree that one can learn by looking at how great photos are taken….sometimes, it brings about inspiration and new perspective.
I don’t know but I prefer to take candid shots..off the streets vs having models posing in studios. I may find a passion in the latter later on..who knows 🙂
Looking at how photos are taken, have a feel about it and translate them back into your photography 🙂
Candid shots requires a different set of photography skills, knowledge and experience versus models posing in studios.
Follow your passion 🙂
Just Do It !
