Nostalgia or drama

The photosession is held by candlelight. Accents should be made on such attributes, which in the literary plan are associated with everything tragic, cause nostalgia. This includes rose petals or a lone rose lying on the bed / floor, a glass of wine, open books, albums with photos, just a photo, a smoking cigarette and so on. In order to convey a note of sadness in a photo session, it's best to spend it near a window or in a cozy corner, on a chair with a rug. You can go further into the genre. For more emotionality in the photo session, postures on the floor are suitable, for example, you can lie curled around the bed, or sit with your knees bent to your chin, in some dreary corner, and next to you is a half empty bottle of wine, scattered photos, burning candles.

Children's shooting

A separate approach is being built for children's shooting at home. Photoshoot of a child at home can be both genre, and ordinary, non-topic. It is best to spend it in the usual situation for the baby. His room or place, where he feels comfortable, will do.

It is necessary to give time to the child in such a survey, so that he is accustomed to the photographer and the process itself.

The first 50-100 frames, as a rule, are trial.

Never force a child to pose and look into the camera if he does not want to. Ask him to turn, spin, scream something, but do not perform some kind of pose. This will only stall the baby.

Ideas for a photo session of a house of this nature are a lot. Here is the list of the most popular:

Ambiguous is the case - photosession at home. The main thing is that it did not turn out cheap! Simply, when you hear this phrase willy-nilly, the so-called "pictures" - so-called ladies, against the background of a carpet, shabby wall or a Soviet refrigerator) are represented. Just do not think that I'm against such warm cozy home photo sessions. I'm just behind! Especially for young parents. When a child is just a baby, it is often impossible to go somewhere with him. Or most of the paid time he will cry. And at home, as they say, and the walls are supported. Just need to understand exactly what you want to photograph, listen to the advice from this article( they are really efficient!) And do not pile up in one picture all the furniture, all the plants and all the members of the family. And you can still take as a basis abovepublished photos. I, for example, have already been inspired and will definitely try!=)
Successful all photo shoots, Friends!)
