    How to Rock a Senior Session

    When it comes to planning for sessions, seniors are some of my favorite people to work with. Don’t get me wrong, I love families, children, engaged couples and wedding ceremonies.. but seniors are close to the top of my list.

    Why, you may ask? It’s simple: seniors are excited to model, seniors are some of my best marketing tools, and seniors know what they want. They also have a great sense of style, which translates well in their photographs.

    When a high school senior books a session with me, I do several things right from the start to help them know I am excited about working with them. I also do my best to get to know them so I can tailor their shoot to fit them perfectly.

  • Intro to Depth of Field

    Intro to Depth of Field

    Taking photographs is great. It’s even better when you can get “that cool effect where the background is all blurry.” This can really make the subject pop and stand out from an otherwise busy background. It can also give your photos a sentimental quality.

    Your camera lens can actually only focus on a very tiny point in space, but there is an area around that point that will appear in focus in your photo. The space before and after your focal point that is in focus is referred to as the depth of field. A large depth of field describes an area where a large amount of the image is in focus; in other words the whole picture is clear. A shallow depth of field occurs when a small amount of the picture is in focus; the subject is clear and you have the “cool blurry background.”
