Hi! Cape Cod and Greater Boston photographers blog welcome you. It’s time to share one more photo genre. This post is about the corporate photographer in Boston and Cape Cod and beyond.
Working on the wedding and family sessions on Cape Cod and Boston sometimes allows more to do another type of photo session – Corporate pictures. Portraits for the staff or (and) group shot. As a photographer, I do know how important to represent your company on the web.
Last year I did professional portraits for a few clinics and health organizations, hair salons, real estate agencies, and the politics from Texas. All the sessions were here in Massachusetts and sometimes in Rhode Island.
So what’s the secret of a good result?
There are many factors:
1. Goals and style of the photos;
2. The light;
3. Choosing the background;
4. The accessories and attires;
5. Working during the posing process;
6. Editing and retouching.
Let’s talk about all the elements a little bit.
1. We have to determine the main style. For example, if the photos are mostly for web pages, we have to find a proper background. If a company has more employees, we can do exciting group shots for all the people or(and) for different departments.
2. As always – it’s all about the light. Soft or slightly harsh, one source of the light or two or even three. How the rooms where the session is supposed to look like.
3. Usually, we can use a room wall to take pictures or interior space. Rarely I have to bring a background and set it up.
4. More casual or suits, black or white, any accessories? As your self what’s the best for you and the personality, which style fits your business style?
5. Staying more natural or official. Any unformal poses, smiling with your bright smiles or with your eyes. Besides formal pictures, we can take some less formal but business portraits. Imagine, you and your colleagues are talking, doing something – a simple trick will bring more life!
6. The light is always about methods with editing, even the camera sharpness. My goal is to avoid situations when models might look older, or sharp skin imperfections caused by the light and digital camera integrated processing. Editing is necessary. Doing the picture seems softener or fixes any imperfections that help people look natural and beautiful.
