Share/Bookmark

Aspiring photographers are always looking for opportunities to get some of the amazing clicks to add to their collection. While some develop their own techniques with practice, some are often confused while choosing their subjects. It might seem easy, but there are a lot of efforts and planning involved in a good photography. In this article, we’ll talk about some techniques that you can use to get stunning portraits.

portrait 10 Tips To Take Stunning Portrait Photography

1 Perspective Transformation

Most of clicks are made at the eye level of the subject. It is must to realize the fact that even a slightest change in the angle or perspective can give really amazing results. You can raise the level of your camera or click from the extreme bottom of the subject to bring some really amazing perspective transformations in your portrait photography.

2. Puzzle Around with Eye Contact

Although, eye contact refers to creating a deep connection between the subject and the viewer, asking your subject to looking off the cameras will help you get realistic impact. When your subject focuses outside the field of camera view, it helps you to click the pictures that create a sense of intrigue and interest amongst the picture viewers. Alternatively, you can also have your subject looking at some point within the frame to give it a realistic approach.

3. Play with the Rules of Composition

There have been many rules laid on compositions, but not many creative heads are able to create a friendly relationship with them. Well, rules are meant to be broken! Consider placing your subject at the dead center or some other creative place in order to get effective results. Also, placing your subject right on the edge of the shots can also create impactful images.

4. Experiment with the Elements of Lighting

Lighting plays a very crucial role when it comes to clicking shots. Creative use of lights can help you achieve extraordinary collection of random pictures. Techniques like side-lighting and slow sync flash can help you create some of the most amazing pictures. These techniques are a great way to embrace the overall appearance of the subject with the help of effective light effects.

5. Look for Interesting Subject

A lot of people get stuck to clicking their family members and friends. As a result, their collection of pictures is limited and unable to show any kind of creativeness. In order to have a good and unique collection of photographs, it is necessary to hunt for subjects from all spheres of life. Clicking people belonging to different backgrounds, ages and ethnicities will help you create interesting portfolio.

6. Shoot Candidly

Some people get too conscious while posing and end up looking weird or unnatural. In simple words it can be said, some people are just not comfortable while getting licked. When you face such problems, consider clicking such people while they are busy in their daily works. You can also ask your subject to pretend to work or move around a bit while you click them. Most of the photographers prefer using this technique to click children while they are busy playing.

7. Use Props

It is always advised to go for theme based portrait photography. Ask your subject to use the prop in the most possible creative way. This way you will have another point of interest in the picture that will make it worthwhile and live. Using prop technique works best with the subjects who ate just not comfortable getting clicked. This way the attention on the viewers gets diverted creating a balanced shot.

8. Focus on a Particular Part of the Subject

You can also photograph just a specific part of the subject. Get close to the particular part and capture it with the best angle. It is also necessary to choose a good angle while clicking any specific body part of the subject. Focusing on a person’s eye, lips, lower body and so on can leave a great impression on the viewer of the image.

9. Conceal Different Parts of your Subject

Playing with variations while concealing the parts of the subject with clothing, light, objects, or hands can work great on the imagination part of the viewers. It will also force your viewers to focus on those parts of the subject that you want them to pay attention at.

10. Take a Series of Random Shots

Set your camera function on the ‘continuous shooting’ mode and let it do the rest of the work. With this feature you can easily create a series of images that will look amazing when presented together. This technique works really well when you’re clicking children or couples.

Selling Stock Photography: A Few Tips For Beginners

Selling Stock Photography: A Few Tips For Beginners

Share/Bookmark

Concert Crowd Stock Photo by Mailis Laos | Dreamstime.com“Hey, hubby, you have always said that I take fantastic photos, and Tim and Kate have also mentioned it couple of times. What if I tried to make a little extra money from my photos?”

Maybe a similar conversation has happen to you and now you are looking around the internet to find the ways to make money with photography.

It might be not seem as easy you’d like. A couple of common suggestions you come across online on how to make money with photography  in their article about making money from photography are not exactly what you probably have in mind, such as…

1) make money from photography by selling your old gear, or

2) make money from photography by renting your gear out

Maybe it’s good to consider these two approaches first, but when you are confident that your photos are great and photography is your passion, you are in a good position to try stock photography as a business! Of course, since the rise of digital photography there are probably as many photographers in the world as there are people. Okay, maybe a little bit less. But the competition is surely higher now that’s it ever been.

Here are a couple of tips that will help you get a good start in stock photography.

Get to know the business

Now days it’s good to start with microstock. Most image licensing businesses have moved to the Internet and several microstock agencies have proved themselves as trustworthy, high-quality image providers. Many agencies have a section with their popular or bestselling images. Check those out to see what kind of images clients are looking for on stock sites. Would you like to create similar images? Would you love it?

Your style doesn’t have to match exactly with popular images. It’s high competition up there and copying the style of bestsellers might bring you more shame than fame. Copying is never a good idea on stock photography, those copycats who do it, will not remain in the business for a long anyway. But checking out bestselling photos might help you to see difference between regular photography and stock photography and the subtle differences that make one photo sell well even though the subject matter might be covered by many other photos.

You will certainly learn a lot about how to create high-quality photos. And there is lots of information on stock sites to help you in that. Several stock sites have blogs and forums where you can learn all kind of tips and tricks. 

Test yourself – are you ready of becoming a stock photographer

Pick one stock photography agency to begin with. Sign up as a photographer and provide your best images for a test drive. Select images which describe your style and showcase your skills the best.

Stock agencies have image reviewers who will examine all images before they go live online. Here’s a place where growing a thick skin will be rewarding. When your images are rejected, and in the beginning it might happen a lot, read carefully the reasons for rejection. Don’t get discouraged. Instead, heed the recommendations and critiques of the reviewers. They are not giving you’re their input to ridicule your work, but to help you improve it.

Wooden Lake Pier Photo by Mailis Laos | Dreamstime.comRead and ask advice in the forums offered by stock agencies and try to figure out what you can do to improve your stock images. You might learn new things that you never thought of as hobbyist photographer. It might look like a lot of work at the beginning but it’s worth it if you don’t give up. Often your images won’t be rejected because of quality but because agency already knows their clients, that they won’t accept a particular style that know won’t sell. Then you might want to try to sell them with a different agency.

Usually the key question about the photo when you are hobbyist is: “How do I create a beautiful photo?” But as a professional stock photographer you should always ask: “How or where could clients use my photo to make profit?” If you know answers to those questions you will do well in both fields.

Selling stock photos is not rocket science. If you love taking pictures, have a good idea for design and what clients might want, and are willing to learn you can start making extra money from your hobby in no time!
