A behind the scenes look at Personality Portraits
These Personality Portraits are so much fun and a great way to capture your child's unique personality! For these sessions I use a seamless paper backdrop, my Paul C. Buff Alien Bee 400 with a medium to large foldable Octabox. I do not use many props as I like to keep the focus and attention on the child, so usually a simple stool and for younger ones a hat or small wooden toy in the picture. For the image above I used a small stool ( found at Five Below for $5!) and a hat which we had fun throwing back and forth during the session :)
Editing: I use a combination of Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop when editing. most of my images are hand edited but to save time I also use some of my favorite actions in Photoshop. Photoshop actions used in this image were from Greater Than Gatsby https://www.greaterthangatsby.com/photoshop-actions/ . I used the Da Vinci action from the Painterly Portrait ll set . I also applied a texture in photoshop that I purchased from Summerana photoshop actions and photography tools.
