Tips & Tricks the Professionals Use to Get Good Shots
Learn How to Prepare for Your Photo Session
A beautiful, artistic, and memorable portrait does not just happen. They generally require a bit of pre-planning. Jeff Kassebaum photography has the talent and skills to capture you in a most flattering and artful way, but there is little that can be done (without computer manipulation) to downplay competing patterns. Overall, simplicity is the key. Let the faces and the setting take more precedent than the clothing. It's not a bad idea to bring along several additional clothing choices just to be sure.
Here are some suggestions to consider before having your portraits taken:
-Consider the location where the portrait is to be displayed.
By laying the clothing out in the area in which the portrait is to be displayed, anything that clashes will be obvious.
Make your final selection much as you would if you were choosing throw pillows for the room.
-Avoid large bold patterns and bright colors
These tend to draw attention away from the face, especially in-group portraits. You want the face to be the focal point, so long sleeved solids or very subtle prints are usually most flattering. Busy patterns and bold colors tend to make a person look larger than they are. Dark clothing tends to minimize body size.
