Coming up with Unique Senior Portrait Ideas for Guys is still one of my favorite parts of specializing in senior portraits. I love coming up with modern, stellar lighting, unique backdrops, celebrity-inspired poses, and anything else I can think of to make each senior portrait experience totally tailored. With this superman senior portrait, I created an edgy movie-poster style 3-light setup and highlighted his AWESOME Superman t-shirt to look larger than life. We even took another shot from this set and photoshopped in a city background to complete the effect, and saved it as a resolution printable as poster size.
I loved this backdrop for Connor – he was the only senior I pulled it out for this year. His all-American look was a perfect fit for this type of senior portrait idea.
We put a strong side light on Connor to highlight his hard work, haha! Definition in muscles can’t be found with a flat, natural light.
We also got a full set of bright, bold senior portraits with an outdoor backdrop. Variety is key for my seniors – we love options.
I encourage all of my senior guys to bring a suit. We can get the most classy, timeless, sophisticated images with an outfit as great and simple as this.
Edgy lighting and expression gave us yet another unique senior portrait idea – grunge.
In all, we were able to get so many background options with Connor, they couldn’t leave home without them all. Imagine how well these photos will look as a set on the wall and in an album! These are legacy pieces that will be passed on for years – one of the best parts about my job is that I get to help others leave a legacy.
