Working With Tall Subjects

Dawn says:

“This senior was a photographer’s dream. She brought exactly the right colors to complement her skin tones and she had an easy and beautiful smile. The session was shot outdoors in Richardson, Texas.”

Dawn’s Photography Tip:

This lovely senior is very tall and, as you can see, absolutely gorgeous. In everyday life, tall girls are often photographed from below, like with cell phone cameras, for example.

And, as we know, when we photograph from below, the subject tends to look bigger. I don’t know a girl who wants to look bigger, so I work hard to shoot down whenever possible.

Because I am average height, I brought a stepstool to the session so I could get a better angle when I needed to.

If you’re working with taller subjects and you follow this advice, your client will get more flattering portraits – even if this means you have to bring a stepstool to the session.
