Phone Photography Friday

Happy Friday! We have about one more week in October. I have no idea where the month has gone. However, we've gotten some warm weather again this week. I hope everyone is savoring the 70 degree weather before we're bundling up for below-zero temps in a few months. The kids and I have been spending a lot of time outside the past few days.

Last week we talked about taking pictures of people, specifically people in action where posing really isn't easy. Today I'm going to touch on the times when you can pose your subject.


If you're taking a picture of a person and you have time to frame your shot and find the light but you aren't really satisfied with what you're capturing, don't be afraid to give them a little direction. Phrases like "can you turn your head a little to the left" or "can you hold your cup with both hands" can really change the end result of your picture. (Thanks for bearing with me to get the second picture above Chelsea.)

You might feel self conscious about how long you're taking to take your picture as you keep telling someone what to do, but fellow creative Kristi from It's All Happening Events coined the phrase #doitforthegram.  So don't worry about what you look like if at the end of it you're really happy with your picture. I mean we are all out there looking silly. You're not alone.

What's really great about our workshop is the time we give you to practice what we've been teaching, and the time to ask us questions on the spot. We can help you with posing, styling, and how to find the light in tough situations.  Plus, you'll leave with great pictures to use on your own social media feeds.
