One of the best things we can do in a senior portrait photography session is include big props in a coordinating location. Put these items together with great lighting, posing, expression, and editing, and you will create a dynamic, EPIC set of images. For Eric, we had him bring his car and found a spot that was a bit grungy with lots of concrete and metal detail and texture. The gray concrete, gray metal textures, gray outfits and silver car made for a striking set (but I am quite partial to tone-on-tone photos. They are timeless and modern and look great in any space).
Senior Portraits for Guys are so much fun. Here are just a handful of Eric’s senior portraits.
Car senior portraits do NOT have to be cookie-cutter or cliche. Done right, they are a modern, fun, impactful way to remember your senior year. I drove a purple 1969 Datsun convertible with Cow seat covers as a senior in high school – how I wish I had been photographed with such a memory during my senior portraits! Alas – Olan Mills doesn’t allow cars in the studio. And i’m not sure they would have known what to do with it even if I could have brought it to my little shoot – requires some thinking outside the box, haha!
Modern Metal Texture and a strong side light make a stand-out set of images.
Always have to get a bold, bright headshot. A strong bokeh in the background (nice blur) means we keep the focus right on your senior.
I LOVE finding wood texture to photograph senior guys with. These pallets were a perfect backdrop with his outfit. And that red sole – ha! perfect pop of surprising color.
A loading dock behind a store (if you can get away with it) has great, masculine texture. The guys love jumping into the giant frame.
