Portrait Photography tips for Beginners
Buy a few scarves
My wife, Emily, made me include this tip for the ladies. She said it s a great tip for dressing women for a portrait photography shoot, but I think it s because she has an obsession with Confessions of a Shopaholic (the girl the green scarf). Anyway, it has worked wonders for me in the past. For $15 you can buy probably 10 scarves at any many stores. Then, you can have your female subjects wear plain colors (such as a white T shirt and jeans) and then wear different colors of scarves. I found that this works GREAT for senior portraits, because teenage girls like accessorizing and changing clothes every five minutes. Big time saver and you ll get many more looks out of one subject.
