Guidance for the Real World
The Portrait Lookbook is designed to help you photograph kids in a way that actually works in the real world. If you’ve ever tried to sit a little kid down and have her hold her hands just so, give you a smile, look here, look there, sit still - it rarely works and there’s usually a downhill progression towards frustration and crying. In the end however, clients will love your work not because you've successfully achieved some JC Penney style pose, but for the beauty, life and emotion that your photos convey.
The Portrait Lookbook guides you in keeping things simple, giving general direction and being open to a variety of ideas. Its looks will inspire you to engage the child with your camera, your surroundings - be it in-studio or on-location - and with their family. The end goal is to create authentic images that capture the personalities of your subjects.
More Than Just Photos
Tips to help you achieve the looks and a successful shoot are interspersed throughout the book. There’s also a special page of On-The-Fly tips for posing families and groups since that's often the most challenging for photographers (and it's the big money shot).
Not only will the Portrait Lookbook help you create better pictures, it will also prompt you to create the images that your clients will spend more on when it comes time to buy albums and wall prints. Better images, more money – you can’t lose!
