Great portraits and modeling portfolios are about more than a beautiful face and some nice clothing. One of the most fun ways to really make a photo “pop” with energy is by adding a Prop. The prop is simply an object that enhances the look of the model or the scene. I love props that my model can hold in her/his hands. By holding onto an object it gives the model a ton of options to add life and interest to the scene.
The Umbrella in this beach photo is a perfect example of a prop adding energy to the scene. Not only does it give the model some extra options to her posing but it also provides some shade that enhances the lighting. Plus the umbrella’s fun color and pattern adds a little surprise!!!
Very cool… So when you’re choosing your wardrobe for your photo session don’t forget the extra elements like PROPS – jewelry – plenty of shoe selections – and maybe even a little touch up make-up.
Yeah … Now Live Love and Laugh
All My Best,
