Senior Portrait Tips – Jennifer

I’m planning on starting up a senior portrait business in Warrensburg this summer, but that means I need more examples to create advertisements and show just what I can do. So over Spring Break I decided to try and photograph some seniors for free- they got a free one hour session and ten fully retouched photos on a CD that they can print themselves or order prints through me.

Since it’s been a while since I’ve been to my hometown, Mom talked to a few people she knew, contacting a homeschooling group that might want senior pictures.

Never underestimate the power of social networks and free sessions. I photographed Jennifer yesterday, and these are a few of the resulting pictures. I also have two photoshoots today, with a total of three people. Another tip worth noting is that it’s always good to have a backup camera and to start setting up early. For some reason my Rebel XS decided it didn’t want to trigger my studio flashes. Luckily the 30D did, and I was able to shoot with that.
