Staying inside, doesn’t mean a lack of options for studio portraits.
Indoor studio portraits offer a higher level of control in the shooting environment – there are no dogs to creep into the background, or gusts of wind wreaking havoc with your hair.
This control often results in a more polished look, which is exactly what you want in a professional portrait.
But staying indoors doesn’t mean a lack of options.
If you’ve chosen an experienced studio portrait photographer they will have a bunch of ideas up their sleeve to give you good variety during your studio portrait session.
Changing the background you’re standing in front of is a great first step to changing the look and feel of your portrait.
At the Lizzy C studio we have access to background with different colours and textures, from a very Melbourne charcoal to a white brick wall.
Different props and furniture
Perhaps you’re an artist and would like some of your tools or work in the image. Or you’re a writer and think a computer or pen and paper might be useful in a few shots. Maybe you’d like to be standing, perched on a chair, or sitting at a table.
There are many variations you can choose to create the perfect image that will represent your brand.
Another trick is to bring in a variety of tops, jackets, ties, and hats to help change up your look.
Just adding a colourful scarf to an outfit can introduce an element of fun and relax the entire photo.
So before you have your photo session have a look through your wardrobe and see which pieces of clothing will achieve the looks you are after.
