How to Make a Portrait Session Even More Exciting

One fun thing to do is to create a theme during one of your photography sessions. This will help you stretch your photography skills. During a recent photography excursion, I was able to take a few shots of some of the awesome models that we had.

A few of the models fit into the theme of hikers in the mountains. In order to get the shots to come out even more special, we used a reflector and a Godox light.

This allowed for the model themselves to pop out more. I also went in and sharpened the picture.

At the Mormon Row Barns, we were able to take a few shots of our Native America chief and girl. We only used reflectors for these shots.

This allowed us to get light underneath the hats and create a focal point in our photography.
