Presentation - Portraiture by Lisa Cuchara
http://www.photographybylisaandtom.com
When photographing people professionally various aspects come into play: clothing suggestions, accessory (jewelry, hats, scarves, fun stuff) choices, the comfort level of the person (making them comfortable and establishing rapport), posing hands, facial analysis, matching your pose to your subject, lighting, and most importantly expression (which is related to rapport, natural expression, and your particular model). We will concentrate on tips related to photographing a single person, if time permits we will also touch upon couples.
