Portrait photography is all about capturing your personality with the help of backdrops, lighting, and different poses. However, sometimes portrait photos can look similar, and you look for creative ideas to make them stand out. Those ideas are all up to your style and creativity, and when you combine them with my skills, you get the perfect result. However, it can be hard to come up with ideas, so here are some that I think would fit perfectly for your portrait photos.
Use Your Personal Space
Another great portrait option is to try boudoir photography. We can go to your personal living space, and you can use that opportunity to express yourself with different poses and clothing items as it is a great way to free yourself.
Use Colored Lighting
Proper lighting is very important for photography, but you can take it to the next level by experimenting with different coloured lighting. For example, I’ll use two different coloured lights and direct them from different directions towards you to create a stunning multicoloured effect.
Use Natural Frames
There is no doubt that the framing of a portrait picture determines the uniqueness and creativity of the picture. If you’re taking pictures outdoors, you can use natural aspects like trees and the sky to add depth. However, finding this dept can get tricky during an indoor photography session. So try using hollow picture frames, windows, or doorways to act as frames for you.
Use Props and Accessories
We can also try out different props or accessories for your pictures. You can have nail extensions, wigs, hats, or even smoke for some great effects in the pictures. These props and accessories are a great way to portray your personality.
Reflective photography, if done correctly, can look phenomenal, and it will look good in portraits as well. So, taking a picture of your reflection will add a perspective to your picture. You can even take it to the next level by using a broken mirror to convey an idea.
Use Motion to Add Dynamics
Perhaps one of the easiest ideas to implement in a portrait. I will slow the shutter speed down and ask you to move during the shot. This will capture your movements motion blur and create a unique portrait picture.
