Understanding the Difference: Portrait vs. Family Photo Editing

The article discusses the differences in editing between Portrait and Family Photography Packages:

Portrait Package ($150): Tailored for individual portraits, includes a 20-minute shoot and two edited images. Editing focuses on precise touch-ups (skin, blemishes, hair), facial symmetry, eye sparkle, makeup, teeth, wrinkles, and slimming for a flawless look.

Family Package: Aimed at capturing family moments, includes a longer 1.5-hour session and 20 edited images. Editing emphasizes color correction, general skin softening, composition cropping, background fixes, and enhancing contrast and colors for a cohesive and vibrant family portrayal.

The main difference is that the Portrait Package offers detailed, personalized edits for individual perfection, while the Family Package focuses on overall coherence and capturing the essence of family connections with a more general editing approach.

Mobile photography: tips for taking beautiful pictures with your smartphone

Following the "rules" should in no case make the picture dry - after all, there would be no tennis without the net. What you make directly depends on your ideas, desires, and inspiration!

Don't fall into the trap of thinking that a beautiful shot can only be made with expensive equipment. If you follow the basic rules, your phone can display a picture as good (what it loses in pixel count it can make up for in composition and interest) as a professional camera! All it takes is practice and a good eye.

The Transition to Remote Work

After the pandemic is over, corporate culture will not be the same. Some companies will undoubtedly keep at least a portion of their workers employed at home - the employees and managers themselves, having felt the benefits of working from home, will not want to return to offices, and business owners (having measured the KPI of employees and the savings in renting premises and utilities) will leave only the most necessary employees in the office. Therefore, in order to move on and develop, you need to try to transform your business online as much as possible, paying attention to your appearance and image on social networks and online platforms.
A professional portrait will help you build a reputation and give your business a face.

Makeup for a business portrait

For a business portrait, you need to do the most neutral makeup; avoid aggressive colors and shadows. Often, it turns out that minimal foundation and lipstick is enough.
If necessary, almost any kind of makeup can be added when retouching photos.
