Ep 252 is out!
This week @valeriekhoo and I discuss techniques you can use to take more meaningful, authentic and memorable photos.
A great portrait is so much more than nailing the lighting and focus. If you want to take your portraits next level then you want your images to have the x-factor or soul. The stuff nobody really talks about much.
How many images have you seen once and still think about years later? Why is that?
I can guarantee it had nothing to do with the lighting, pose or model.
Some of the topics discussed include
* Remember that one size doesn’t fit all.
* Photograph the person, not the style
* Find a background that supports what you are trying to say
* Light in a style that flatters or brings out the features of the person you are photographing
* Pose the person in a way that suits their body type and personality.
* Learn the art of natural posting and give your model the confidence to “own’ the pose
* Learn the art of posing different body types
* inauthentic poses
* Keep poses simple
* Learn to read non-verbal cues
* Matching energy
* Master one go-to set up you can do confidently as a starting point.
* Be decisive and confident.
* Connect and be authentic, talk open up be authentic
* Watch out for the moments between frames
* Learn how to get rid of photo face

Mumbai Gate of India
Birdman #Mumbai #Fujix100f
Spotted this man guarding the side entrance to The Gateway of Mumbai monument in Colaba. This is “The St Marks Square” of Mumbai and the Birdman looks after the two million pigeons that happily pose
for photos with the visitors.
This is a big job, some of these pigeons have been spoiled by their Instagram fame. They can be divas, no wonder he looks so stressed.
Thank you Birdman, we need more people like you in the world.
