Capture Perfect Outdoor Family Portrait: Tips For Pro Quality Results

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:15:00 +0000

A professional photographer knows it very well that a family portrait comes out really beautiful and lively when it is shot outdoor. But there are so many things that a photographer needs to keep in mind while doing a family portrait. Here we are going to talk about how to get the best out of an outdoor family photography. Learn about the Dos and Don’ts in detail:Pick Only One Focus Point If you are one of those who pick the auto focus option then you are doing your portraits a terrible disservice. Because it allows the camera to select the focus points all by itself. This feature is usually designed to pick whatever is closest to the lens and focus there. In some cases the camera will choose a cluster of focus points and make a “best guess” based on averaging the distance between all the chosen points. Using one focus points gives the photographer ultimate control over the shot.Focus On Eyes  When photographing single member of the family the most important parts to focus on are the eyes. Eyes are the windows to the soul and should be the focal point of any good portrait. We are saying it’s the eyes only that are most important but they are the sharpest elements on the face.Find A Shade  Take pictures in the shade or on a cloudy day. This is hands-down one of the best way to improve your outdoor photos. When sunlight is diffused by the clouds or trees or buildings, there is still plenty of ambient light from the sky to light peoples’ faces. When shooting in the shade, there are no more harsh shadows, only smooth milky shadows created by the subjects’ natural features. With proper exposure and white balance, you can make these shots look amazing.Gadgets You’ll NeedHere are the list of things you are going to need for an outdoor portrait.Essentials:-    Standard Zoom Lens-    Flashgun-    ReflectorExtras:-    Fast Prime lens (such as a 50mm f/1.8-    Telephoto zoom lens-    Wireless flash trigger-    Flash diffuserUse Your Flash  Most people tend to use flash at night or indoors, but it can be a valuable tool outdoors during the day as well. Just make sure you’re close enough to your subject that the flash can reach him/her. Most pop-up flashes on cameras can only go a few yards at most.Shooting Children or Pets While shooting picture of children or pets, get down to their level instead of shooting from above looking down. This is a good tip whether you’re shooting outdoors or indoors.[...]
