High School Senior Photographer | Guys
Photographing senior sessions is definitely high on my list of favorite shoots! Shooting outdoors offers so much diversity too. I love the gorgeous fall colors.
Are you a high school senior or a recent grad? Don’t just settle for the pictures from the contract photographer, get your real portraits from certified professionals who have the time to be creative. We have the time and energy to give you a great shoot AND we are able to properly process/edit your images from the shoot.
At this time of the year, I frequently see posts of senior pictures from other high school seniors (in St Charles and around the U.S.) Some are certainly done by experienced photographers and some are definitely not. I want to educate you a little about what makes a great portrait.
- You can see your subject’s eyes! This is a big one. Anyone with a “good camera” (or even a good cell phone) can take an attractive subject, put him in a nice background and take a picture. BUT, it takes experience and usually off-camera lighting to bring light into the eyes.
- The shadows in the image are pleasing. This is also important! Look at photos online of people taken outdoors. Where are the shadows? Do they cross the face in an unnatural way? Are the shadows pleasing or distracting? The mark of a trained professional can usually be seen here.
- Are the shadows missing? That’s called flat-lighting. Usually, flat-lighting is undesirable. Shadows give dimension, shadows give feeling, shadows set the mood.
Are you a high school senior in the St Charles area or a metro St Louis High School Senior? Do you want amazing high school senior portraits? Do you want more than just a few senior pictures? Please give us a call at 636-947-5956. Don’t settle for ok photography, strive for the best.
