Elle and her dad came over to the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque New Mexico for a social media portrait session. She is going to have her own YouTube Channel in the near future and wanted a variety of different photos for showcasing in social media. We went through five different outfit changes and thus five totally different scenarios! Taekwondo is above!Read More
social media portrait
I will be working with new client Kevin on several photography projects. The first of which was this social media portrait session. Kevin wanted to have some good portraits of himself showing what he likes to do in his own home setting for social media and also for dating websites. I have been trying to find a way for years to reach people who use dating websites who are trying to find their dream matches with horrible cell phone mirror photos of themselves. If you are going to spend money on a dating website, and are serious about finding someone, then I think there is great value in having professional portraits of yourself made showing you having fun and doing things you like to do. You will definitely stand out from 99% of the other profiles on any dating website just by having high quality and most importantly flattering images of yourself.
Kevin wanted one shot of him looking more formal. It was his idea to have photographs of his children in the background. I liked the idea also. There was a challenge to overcome in not having any reflections from my speedlights in the photo frames on the wall, but after a few adjustments I was able to produce the glare free shot above.
This photograph shows Kevin by his pool table which tells the story of one of his hobbies. He is still the main subject of the photograph, but including the pool cue and edge of the table shows what Kevin likes to do for fun.
Kevin's house had a great kitchen which I thought should definitely be featured in one of his social media portraits. This shows him in an inviting activity where a person on a dating website might imagine they would like to visit sometime. In the right background of the shot is Kevin's new Italian ice machine! He can make his own sno-cones.
Next I will be photographing Kevin's GT-R. I am looking forward to it!
I made this portrait of Kate for the intended use of looking good on social media websites from Facebook to Linkedin. It is a mix of formal and casual made right in her own living room! I brought my mobile studio setup saving Kate the trouble of having to leave home to get a great portrait of herself made. The setup consists of a collapsable background leaned against a wall, a speedlight on a light stand in a brolly and another speedlight on the floor pointing up at the background.
So if you are using a profile photo on Facebook that you are not happy with, stop! Reserve your social media portrait session today as I can come to you or we can make a great shot at your favorite outdoor location too!
