Be Your Own Stylist
With Joe Edelman’s myriad fashion sets, one may wonder about his creative styling process. Styling is an essential element in portrait photography often overlooked by many. The success lies in the effective collaboration with a stylist. But it doesn’t stop there. There is more to understand on how to combine styling to your artistic choices. As an award-winning portrait and beauty photographer, Joe breaks down his process for styling to improve your everyday portrait work.
Ablaze
Washington-based boudoir photographer, Jasmin Jade, aims to promote confidence and self-love among women through portraiture. Jasmin emphasizes how to light and authentically pose models outdoors. Depending on the creative intent, a photographer must learn when and how to fully embrace shadows and strong highlights for portraits taken under the midday sun.
Titania
Shooting with a harsh light at 2PM, fine-art photographer Ruth Chornolutskyy takes us to an enchanted marshy location to shoot her Titania-inspired concept. To mitigate strong contrast in portraits, she employed off-camera flash by properly placing the model under the shade of the trees. With Ruth's passion for styling, editing and scouting for enchanting locations, she definitely delivers the magic touch of just what a photo needs in a tricky situation.
Indoor Flash for Beginners
When the weather doesn't allow shooting outdoors, you may have to use a flash indoors. Wedding and portrait photographer Vanessa Joy lays out all the different real-life lighting scenarios on when to use a flash efficiently for special events such as weddings or engagements to portrait sessions such as beauty and fitness. From simple to two-light setups, Vanessa captures photographs with versatility when natural light just wasn't an option.
