Personality in Focus

IMG_3325

Photography is taking your subject and placing them in the perfect setting. The ideal setting is fluid; it changes with each subject and should reflect its personality.

My crazy sister’s body and mind don’t agree; she is a winter person trapped by her affection for summer activities. Thankfully, El Niño has gifted us with such a mild winter that she has not come down with cabin fever. Even with the surplus of spring-like weather, she refuses to keep her true personality cooped up by frigid temperatures and a few inches of snow.

Don’t let the weather define your shoot. Your subject should be the foundation for every single photograph you take. Do something that is counter-intuitive. Morph several aspects of their personality. Your subject isn’t static, and a cookie-cutter picture isn’t enough to do justice for the amazing person they are.

  1. I am in love with these shots. I’ve always loved pictures taken in the snow. They’re so out of the ordinary, and these specifically… I’m not much of a photographer (not at all, actually), but everything about these just seems so lively and beautiful. Especially that smile on your sister’s face. That’s by far the best part. 🙂

  2. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know a
    lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I feel that you can do with some percent to pressure the message home a little bit, however other
    than that, that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.
