You are receiving this email because you registered with Hey PAPArazzi Photography to view photos of Lakeway and Lake Travis residents and activities.  Thank you for your past interest and your continuing support.

Many have asked for ideas and recommendations related to photography.  I’m happy to share my photography tips with you and hope you find them helpful.

Tips For Great Portraits

I love to photograph people and create beautiful individual and family portraits. Many of us know people who don't like having their picture taken.  It seems a few may even prefer to visit the dentist rather than "Say cheese..."

My primary goal is to create portraits where everyone looks great!  (An example is the portrait of the beautiful woman to the right.)  Secondly, I strive to make the experience enjoyable and have fun along the way.

Here are three tips I suggest when shooting portraits:

  • try to keep the eyes in sharp focus
  • find soft, complementary lighting (natural light from a North-facing window is good)
  • and avoid distracting background elements.

Can you spot how these 3 tips are used to improve these other portrait shots?  http://www.heypaparazzi.com/p861166881
