What photos will be beautiful even 20 years later?
October 23, 2019
SUITABLE PHOTOGRAPHER Beautiful staging, attention to details and sincere emotions of lovers - this is what allows photos to pass the test of time. But it is important not only the high quality of the work of a professional, but also whether you are on the same wavelength with him, are you comfortable together, does his style of shooting suit you?
ACCENT ON SENSES Simple and elegant photos of sincere feelings and emotions of lovers - a win-win for a photo shoot. Holding hands, walking, looking into each other's eyes, kissing - all that will never go out of style. Photos of your radiant smiles, warm hugs or tears of happiness will be the highlight of your photo album.
CAUTION WITH B / W Black and white photographs have their own charm, but a family photo album, consisting of such photos by 90%, is not the best idea. Floristics and elegant decor of the location, a walk in the flowered garden or on the old city streets - all this looks much more advantageous in color.
LESS POSTPRODUCTION Perhaps now you like dark and contrasting photos, but after a few years, such postproduction may seem outdated or just unnecessary. Ideal color correction and photo retouching should be almost invisible, so as not to distract attention from the main thing - the feelings of two people.
REFUSE PHOTOSHOP No signatures on the photo or dinosaurs in the background. A good series is one that tells a story without the use of such “tricks”. Even if now it seems original, this style will quickly go out of fashion, leaving you with photos, in which there are so few of you real!
ELEGANT IMAGES Are you sure that cropped top and pink hair are what you will like in 20 years from now? Say “yes” to a free and bright style only if it fully reflects your character and mood, is in harmony with the concept of the shooting and is suitable for you. If this is just a tribute to fashion and a desire to stand out - give preference to the more classic options. Believe me, you will not regret it!
"NO!" TO FASHIONABLE TRENDS ... ... that are not close to you. Listen to yourself, not the Pantone institute or fashion blogs that claim that this season should be given a pale pink palette or modern style. If you like saturated blue or you dream of a soulful photo shoot with rustic elements, feel free to abandon fashion trends! Think of trends as recommendations that you can follow only if they are truly in tune with your ideas about the perfect photo shoot.
MORE SPECIALTIES The list of required photos is a great way to not to miss anything important on the day of the shooting. But leave a place for true emotions, spontaneity and impromptu, perhaps those photos, that turned out to be random, will eventually become the most beloved ones.
