Fine art photography
Fine art portraiture, for me, is about capturing the essence. It is about finding a deeper meaning of the subject I photograph. I love creating portraits that tell the story of a person and last forever – capturing the infinity.
You can reflect one’s soul in a photograph
I do my research and get to known my subject first. Then I try to reflect their soul in my photographs. Whether it’s a bride on her wedding, a child or a person in my studio, I believe in a deep meaning of a photograph.
Showing emotions is crucial in my fine art photography. I focus on natural photography, capturing people as they are. I avoid ‘posing’ although I give guidance to help my subjects to feel comfortable and express themselves.
Lighting for fine art photography
Lighting is extremely important in my fine art photography. Whether it’s a natural light or a studio set up, I use it to highlight the mood and express emotions. I’m often inspired by Rembrandt lighting in paintings and film noir lighting.
Creating a fine art portrait
Other elements of portraits, such as a location, props, flowers, outfits and colours are very important too. I plan my portraits in advance, creating a balanced composition.
