Plan An Activity
This is it. If you were to take away just one tip from this entire article, it’s this one. Planning an activity will bring forth a whole new wave link to your photography. It’s the difference between just sitting on the couch versus the dynamic of making coffee in your kitchen. With my friend, Maggie, I’ve demonstrated the dynamic range you’ll acquire when telling your subject to do something that they do every day inside their home. For Maggie, it was to 1.) make coffee, 2.) put makeup on in an artistic manner, 3.) putting on a record, 4.) reading on the couch, and 5.) napping (ha). These are all fantastic ways to grab lovely, non-staged candid images to your portfolio. Make breakfast, bathe your baby, do an art project, or photograph an entire morning routine.
