Traditional Portrait

February 12, 2019  •  2 Comments


This is one of the things that I still love to do, a traditional portrait of a person in the studio. For me it's not just about the photography. I enjoy the one-on-one communication with the person I'm photographing, making them feel comfortable in front of the camera. The woman I photographed was 80 years old and, in my opinion, a classy, older woman like her should be photographed in this more traditional style. Layn


Portraits That Tell Your Story

January 30, 2019  •  1 Comment


Where do you work? What do you do? Do your business images tell your story? I photograph a lot of environmental portraits like this for businesses because they quickly answer those questions. A nice, clean-cut employee in the foreground wearing the business's uniform and a backdrop of the sewing machine with the tools shows they do equipment repair. It easily sets the stage for promoting the work of the business. Layn


Profile Pictures

If you've ever found yourself squinting at someone's profile picture on social media, you'll appreciate how tight I photographed this gal. A shot like this fills up that small profile box, so a person scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. can see your face, know it's you and pay attention to what you are posting. Being visible is especially important if you use social media for work. Layn

 

 


Dog Playing in Snow

I'm pretty sure the only creatures that like playing in snow more than kids are dogs. Besides showing how much fun the dog is having, check out the intensity of those eyes, this image also captures the depth of the snow by placing the dog to the side so you can see the hollow behind her. Layn
