12 Techniques for Digital Portrait Photography Inspiration

1. Photoshop:
If you are good at processing and image manipulation (post-production), then use it as an advantage. Be extravagant with custom, try one of the new Photoshop tricks or even try to create one photo collage fancy

2. OVER Exposé:
Residual light photography, also called high-key image makes beautiful portraits with soft gentle light sense. One advantage of pictures over expose is that small details and defects of the samples were blown away, making for a much smoother image,

3. UNDER Exposé:
Often when looking at the first photo array that makes up the majority, also known as low-key image, the natural eye will be attracted by the bright part of the picture photo. This trend gives us one picture looks rough and rugged than high-key image.

4. Back light:
Hair will light up when it was taken opposite with the light source, so if the majority of the hair can then make it stand out by placing the subject between you and one light source. You can manipulate this technique to create the solid silhouette images (backlit images with the subject's shadow):

5. Posing:
Try creating photo pose with a crazy position; it is even more unique if it is a difficult and uncomfortable position for the model.

6. Reflections:
Use different surfaces to create a special aspect of the image. Mirror windows, water ... the surfaces reflect light very well, and every kind of material has a different result.

7. Shadows:
Another way to capture impressive portrait is to make the shadows become one important part of the image. Sometimes the shadow can be made to stand out more than the subject that creates the shadow

8. Get close:
There is no photography rule against cropped most of the model’s face. This makes people are more attracted by what was left in the photo.

9. (Un) focus:
Sometimes, out focus on the subject is more interesting than the in focus (sounds a little ridiculous anyway: D: 7). This is like adding some element of mystery to the photo because sometimes you cannot know exactly who in the picture is.

10. Movement:
Use movement to express the dynamic nature of the image, maybe even the whole subject completely blurry. In this case, ignore the subject and think about creating one new entity through the old movement of the subject.

11. Capture the moment:
Capture the moment when someone is doing something that they love, even if it is not performed. Street Photography is one of my favorites because it takes life as it is happening

12. Color:
Using vibrant colors and contrast to attract attention to the parts of the image that you want to emphasize. The subject in this case can be makeup, clothing, accessories, or anything else you have in your ability.
