We shot Charlotte's portrait in our studio the other day. Mid way through the shoot she felt the photos weren't turning out quite as she had imagined, and we quickly identified that it was because portraits taken in the studio tend to appear more formal. In order for her to achieve a more organic portrait, we decided to add a subtle breeze from our wind machine, enhancing the liveliness of the image. With one minimal change we were able to dramtically transform the feeling of the image from commercial to organic.
We always encourage our subjects to review the photos in between rounds so that we can make adjustments where necessary. With your on set feedback we are able to make a variety of changes including the crop, softening the lighting, adding contrast or more shadows, changing the shooting orientation, and more.
