Glessner Photography- Johnstown Senior Portrait Photographers
One of my favorite senior pictures to date and can you believe this was taken in his parents bathroom? As I was looking for a good place to shoot, this view caught my eye. I closed the doors about half way on both sides for 2 reasons. 1. To frame the subject and 2. To hide my softbox that was to the left and slightly in front of him. He was actually getting ready for the prom, but it also made a great addition to his senior portrait collection. For more Senior Portraits, visit my website here: www.ebglessner.com

Portrait tip, roll with your subject.  This was a test shoot for a formal portrait, but once we were done with that, Tracy didn't mind taking his shirt off for something a little more fashion.  It was unexpected, but ended up being my favorite photo from the shoot.  More on the blog, almost all of my blog posts include some helpful information for photographers.

It's obvious from these photos that Tracy is a boss! He crushed this shoot! It's a fitting look because he actually is a boss, the owner/CEO of his own company. I had a great time meeting Tracy, he comes across as very genuine and humble. I can see why people give him their business.

Portraits - Positioning of Lights

In this portrait the main light is on the viewer's right. To me, it will always look sightly wrong to light pictures this way, and I'll tell you why. In most western languages (I assume you speak English if you are reading this) we read from left to right. So a picture with a car or a train traveling across the frame from left to right will always look more natural to us than a photo where the vehicle is traveling from right to left. Although there is obviously no train here, we perceive the light as a sort of movement across the frame and we are, by and large, more comfortable when the 'direction of travel' is the same direction that we 'read' the picture.
The only reason I took the picture this way round is that I knew it was going to appear in a magazine on the left side of the page.

Yes, you're right Gary, the shadow from the hair would cover the eye. So you'd need to either change the hair or move her face round a little to the left.

Darker skin tends to come out oversaturated. For this corporate portrait, I tried to  even skin out by taking a hue/saturation adjustment layer, using the color picker and sliding down over the most saturated spot. Then I took a curves adjustment layer and created an inverted S curve to flatten it out a bit. I think it looks silkier. Also: Layer with high pass filter on hard light blending mode and a mask to enhance some features.
