HOW TO WORK A PHOTOGRAPHER IN A SMALL TOWN

Overhead
When living in small cities, the overhead is usually lower. Maybe our work can also be priced cheaper? This mistake is often made by photographers from small cities, believing that they are not entitled to charge the same fees for services as photographers in large cities.

It’s all about the look – the model’s eyes in the photo look a little boring, not like in reality. Sounds familiar? What is missing? No, only the glare in the eyes disappeared.

How bright flashes in the eyes change a photo

Glare, or lights in the eyes – this is the reflection of light sources on the iris of the model’s eyes. You will always see such glare in professional portrait photography. For example, if you look closely at portraits of Continue reading
