Not everyone wants to buy a photographic masterpiece. Most people just want to see their loved ones happy. It is hard to capture it with a camera if you understand the "Three Elements Classic" production of commercial portraits.


Instead
of spending countless hours taking classes to learn every possible
detail about the photograph, you can learn some basic things you can do
to start earning some money from it.




One.

1

Understand the importance of lighting.


* Shoot happy people whose faces you can notice right away. You'll never hear this in a workshop, seminar or institute of photography, but that's what people want to buy.

* Use soft lighting, as created by umbrellas or at sunset. Make sure there is enough light to eliminate all shadows and produce a picture very clear. You may not win awards or competitions that way, but it will help a lot in the production of commercial photos.

*

When in exposed locations and in low light, create bright faces using fill flash.

Organize the body position of the people photographed.

* Avoid shooting people totally opposite. The exception to this rule is when you have to shoot entire families or large groups, for reasons of space. The closer the picture area occupied by the body, the greater focus on the subject's face. Stay
tuned to body angle, and the positions of the hands and feet,
regardless of whether people are standing, sitting or reclining on the
floor.

* Turn your hands to the sides with your fingers close together (to make them less visible). If possible, you can also hide them behind other person who is in the photo.

* If the legs are in the picture, minimize the visible area of ​​them crossing them toward the ankles. This will greatly reduce their presence in the picture. If the person is standing, ask her to put one foot in front of the other, so that the legs appear to be tapering. The
person should support your weight on your back leg (remember, they will
be at an angle of approximately 3/4) and bring the other leg more
forward leaning slightly to get a foot in front of the camera.

*



Ask people to bow their heads slightly to the side. A
woman alone should tilt your head slightly in any direction, while men
can get his head straight or tilting it slightly in the opposite
direction to the shoulder that is ahead.

Develop a good eye for composition.

* The heads should be photographed at different levels. In
some cases, you will find that this is impossible, but if you do your
best to balance the height of the head of each of the individuals, you
can create professional-looking photos.

*
Put in your pictures of people standing, sitting in chairs or on the
arms of chairs, sitting on the floor, kneeling, squatting and even
lying.

*

When photographing family groups, tilt their heads inward toward each other, to give a touch of union.

* Find out which elements of your photos have more appeal. Ask people why they chose particularly those who bought copies. The
better you understand your work and what customers like, the easier it
will be for you to have some fun while producing their prints.

* Do not assume you need to know every little detail of how to take perfect shots before they even start. Amateur
photographers often make this fatal mistake and end up delaying the
start of the business because they want everything to be "perfect",
which is unnecessary to satisfy the common customer.

* Go in search of consumers and start your business. Learn from your mistakes.

* If you know beautiful couples take photos of the couple and each one of them separately so they can keep in their wallets!

*
In addition to creating your own website or portfolio, there are
services like Cutcaster, Fotolia or iStockphoto you can sell royalty
free photos for a wide audience.
