I always recommend making a photo book. Thus, memories are stored longer, safer and more accessible than in disk archives.

The project consists of 3 hours of planning and coordination, 1 hour of renting a dressing room and 2 hours of a photo studio. This includes 1 make-up from the makeup artist and 1 styling from the stylist. The duration of photography is 2 hours, and after another 7 hours of selection with color correction of the entire material. As a result, you get 90-120 finished photos from the project, 9 photos in retouching. All this takes 2-3 weeks. Transfer is carried out through Google Drive.

What is portrait photography?

What types of portraits exist?

The portrait photography itself can be divided into many categories. We work in three main categories: male, female and business. But despite such you can classify more like this: Traditional portrait.

Traditional, or classic portrait photography, refers to the image where the face is the most important and often the only element. The purpose of photography is to depict a particular person. As a rule, the person should look straight into the camera. The picture is usually cropped by two thirds.

Portrait in the environment. The object is photographed in the natural environment. For example, a worker on a construction site, a teacher in a class, a sculptor in a studio, and so on. Environment photo session allows you to make a story, and give more ideas about the person.

Documentary portrait. This style is used in photojournalism, travel photography, street photography and reportage photography. Unlike the previous type of portrait, it is made at the moment, without preparation, and this is especially valuable.

Creative types of portrait photography

Fashion and beauty portrait is a special type of portrait used in glossy magazines and catalogs. Not only the object is important, but the composition as a whole - make-up, accessories, hairstyle.

Abstract portrait. Such portraits are not based on a realistic image of a person. Often used collage, special techniques, special effects, digital manipulation.

Portraits rarely exist in their pure form, more often they are combined to maximize the full disclosure of a person’s personality, complete coverage of the event and the realization of the author’s idea.

Portrait photo shoot in Kiev

Based on all of the above, you can guess that for portrait photography is needed to create an atmosphere. In Kiev, we conduct most of the portrait sessions in photo studios. It is there that everything necessary for the disclosure of the image and the creation of a thematic atmosphere.

In addition, the studios have the necessary technical conditions (lights, backgrounds, interiors) for comfortable work of the model and the photographer. In addition to the studios, in Kiev we use restaurants and cafes.

There you can always make a series of casual portraits of lifestyle, while ordering a cup of coffee and some dessert. Another important attribute for the portrait is the preliminary preparation of the model.

We recommend that you always use the services of professional makeup artists and stylists before you start taking pictures. The tone applied to the skin and the hairstyle are very important elements of the portrait.
