Shooting in Groups
Taking photos of the groups was the most fun and awkward. It was fun because of the feelings you can create with people. There’s definitely strength in numbers.It was awkward because not all of the couples are couples in real life so they got kinda weird when we would ask them to pose certain ways. It makes sense though, I know it’s weird.
When I was outside I tried to use a lot of shallow depth. I think that it makes portraits look better. I had a higher f stop when I was inside to cater to the auxiliary lighting and indoor lighting. I did simple edits in post like skin softening, iris enhancing, and blemish removal.
