Classic Photography Style

Classical: Formal shots, Posed groups, Portraits posed using lighting techniques introduced by Rembrandt in the 1600s. Timeless images you will cherish.

The majority of people are not entirely comfortable when it comes to posing for photographs but they do want to have some posed photos in their albums so here are a few things to consider:

The photographers job is to help you forget there is a camera in front of you. The best way to do this is to have a chat with the photographer and if some rapport or banter develops all the better!

There are several main reasons that photographers pose subjects. Firstly, lighting is important, specifically how the light falls on your face. Light falling across your face is ideal as it gives depth to the image. Secondly, body position with respect to the camera: body position angled to camera is slimming. Thirdly, camera position slightly above will guarantee there is no dreaded double chin!

Finally, the only thing that you need to is relax as posing helps to photograph you looking your best.
