Tips on professional portraits for your Prescott business

Jul 17, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography can create a professional portrait for your Prescott business and help you stand out from the crowd.

Not all portrait poses should be the same. Aris Affairs Photography shares some tips on professional portraits for your Prescott business.

There are some essentials that need to be considered when it comes to portraits for your business. Let’s start with the basics:

Good posture. 
It is important to keep an eye on your posture. Those being photographed need to check their back and shoulders for posture. Slouching affects the portrait, even if it is only a head and shoulders shot. Good posture will help keep the subject looking sharp and professional. After all, these portraits will be for professional use.

Watch the chin.
In considering posture, it’s important to focus on the chin. In many cases the chin will be up too high. This causes the subject to look down at the camera. The resulting portrait shows too much of the neck, and the facial features look small in comparison. The chin should move down just a bit. However, take care to avoid a double chin from forming by the chin being held too low.

Be comfortable.
Nothing loosens up a photo subject more than getting involved in some kind of action that is compatible with the subject’s profession. It should correspond to their branding, be it welding, office work or dance instruction.

Chat.
Talk about your business, your children, your vacations, or any topic that is fun and light. This will help facial expressions to be natural and relaxed.

Aris Affairs Photography hopes our tips on professional portraits for your Prescott business are inspiring to you. The best way to get a great portrait is with a creative professional photographer. Aris Affairs Photography would love to capture the best portraits possible. Schedule your photo session today by calling 928-642-4049.
