People often think studio photography is only for those who want to wear white shirts and jeans and be photographed on a white background. While I love the classic high key (white on white) look, I wanted to show you all of the other options available for in studio photography.
We do our best to have a telephone or in person consultation with every client. Your consultation is the time to get to know each other, talk about what you are looking for in a portrait and I find the most common questions are about backdrop choice and clothing options.
We have several background choices available for your session; black, white, grey, black and white damask, royal blue, midnight blue, caramel brown, rocker brown, and twilight.
After the decsion has been made for the background choice, next comes the question of what to wear?
Your clothing should be about who you are as a person; if you usually wear sneakers and ripped jeans having your photos done in a suit will feel uncomfortable and it will show in the photographs. If on the other hand, you feel you rock out in a shirt and tie as Ryan does, bring it!
Although you don’t necessarily have to match, I think coordinating outfits works well. You may find you already have lots to work with in your closet, if not… who doesn’t love to get new clothes?
Custom photography is all about choices; it’s about you so make it personal.
I’ve compiled a collection of images to show you all of our background choices and some great examples of clothing that looks great with each.
