Lifestyle Photography Tips: Get The Lighting Right

Even though the key to capturing great lifestyle photographs is to let things happen naturally, a little bit of direction to get the lighting right won’t hurt. When shooting your subjects, keep your focus on them until you find the light on their face. Then, consider turning them until their face is perfectly illuminated.

Lifestyle Portrait Photography Tips: Encourage Your Subject

Shooting lifestyle photography means discouraging subjects from posing for pictures. However, bringing creative ideas to the table can be a great way to encourage an enjoyable and memorable scene. Try keeping your camera ready while your subjects bake cookies, play in the park, clean up the home, or just about anything that involves the whole family.
