The Art of Family Portrait Photography

  2. 2. The Art of Family Portrait Photography Family portrait photography has evolved into more than just photographs of your family. Many modern photographers view portraits as an artistic expression. The portrait can show the bond shared by the family, how they feel, and represent who they are. Portraits aren’t just about smiling and staring into the camera. Family portraits don’t have to be ordinary and traditional; they can be unique and creative.
  3. 3. Family’s Distinctive Qualities And Relationships Each family is different and artistic family portrait photography can express individuality and showcase each family’s distinctive qualities and relationships. When the family members, and everyone else for that matter, look at the portrait, it has the power to invoke feeling and emotions much like fine art does. Artistic family portraits can tell a story and, with one solitary image, induce profound, emotional reactions.
  4. 4. What Makes Artistic Family PortraitPhotography Different Traditionally, family portraits were taken with everyone standing or sitting in a uniform group, all looking straight at the camera. Many artistic photographers have changed all that. A couple may stare lovingly into each others eyes. Portraits of a family with a new baby may have all members looking at the baby.
  5. 5. Conventional Family Portrait Dramatic effect can be accomplished by having the family members look in different directions and at different angles. Conventional family portrait photography featured the family grouped in the center of the frame but the artistic appearance of a family off-centered or asymmetrically arranged can add special dimension or depth to the image.
  6. 6. Different Angles Different angles can also introduce a new element to the portrait. Rather than the typical straight on shot, the photograph can be taken from an elevated position. The photograph could be shot from below, looking up at the family, or any number of other angles. These alterations in perspective can completely change the whole look and feel of the image.
  7. 7. Colors Can Dramatically Affect The Appearance Of The Image Colors can dramatically affect the appearance of the image as well. For instance, dramatic emphasis can be added to a photo with a nude newborn when all other members wear black, focusing the eye’s attention on the baby. Black and white or sepia colored portraits often stand out and appear more elegant.
  8. 8. Unique Element To Your Family’s Portraits Art offers limitless possibilities for the enhancement of family portrait photography. If you contact the studio of an artistic photographer, they will have plenty of creative portrait photography tips and tricks that can add an imaginative and unique element to your family’s portraits. Your portrait should exhibit your family’s individuality and the right photographer will be able to transform your portrait into a true work of art.
