may not find the perfect scene environment every time you shoot, so in this article we want to show you how to achieve 5 creative portrait shooting methods in a small ordinary parking lot.
Looking for a surrounding frame
We all have the logic of those commonly used composition guide lines, but in this case, don’t look for actual lines or frames, but try to Find an area in the scene that can be used to frame the subject. This may mean finding an arch, pillar, or anything well-structured that can help you create a more interesting composition.
In this scene, we found it in a bush There is a small hole where the model can sit and let the leaves frame her upper body and face. Because this is a compact area, the photographer used a 50mm lens to shoot, setting off the figures from behind the bushes, and then filling the whole picture with bushes all around.
Depth before and after
The most eye-catching works usually have interesting foreground or background, or both! Observe carefully in your environment to find places that can compress the background or use the foreground as part of the picture.
is also a bush scene, which can cover the whole in depth Picture. Use a part of the bushes as the foreground, and then place the character in the center of the picture. You can even use the foreground to cover it slightly so that you can still see the bushes in the background. By filling the frame with bushes, we can’t see any mess in the background, making the picture more pure.
If it has just rained, then a small puddle on the ground can produce a unique effect. We lowered our body and tried our best to fill the entire puddle with the picture. In this scene, we had to choose a wider focal length to make the picture more impactful.
If you don’t catch up with the rain, you can also look around and see See what other types of reflections are in your environment-it may be a shop window or even a car window.
Find an interesting background
The biggest advantage of using a large aperture fixed focus lens is that it can make the background pure and make the background look orderly and integrated. This blur will bring surprises that are not visible to the naked eye. Here, the photographer found the rough metal body of a truck as the background, and asked the model to be slightly away from the background to get a stronger sense of shallow depth of field. It is worth noting that the color of the background is best to choose a purer scene.
Use the phone screen to get more reflections
The above mentioned reflections on the ground or some Other specular reflections, in fact, in addition to those inherent reflections, we have a simple tool at hand that allows us to create reflections anywhere, that is our mobile phone. Simply use the reflection of the mobile phone under the black screen and adjust the appropriate distance to obtain the same effect as the mirror reflection.
You can apply these creative principles and composition theories to any place you shoot, and it may bring better results. If you have time, you might as well try Try it!
