I rarely have my photo taken as I prefer to be behind the camera. But I realised that my daughters are growing up super fast and pretty soon they will leave the nest to start their own families and I won’t see them as often. These portraits (or rather, “selfies”) will be all that I have.
NOTE TO SELF
- Break the rules of composition – placing your subject in the centre can sometimes create a powerful image.
- Expetiment with lighting – side lighting can create mood, backlighting, and silhouetting your subject to hide their features can be powerful.
- Shoot candidly – photograph your subject at work, with family, or doing something that they love. This will put them more st ease and you can end up getting some special shots with them reacting naturally to the situation they are in.
