How to choose the location for your photography session?
One of the points that almost everyone forgets when they are organizing a corporate photography session is the location. Thinking about where you are going to take your photos is a very important aspect as it will greatly condition the session.
A location, such as renting H2 photography studio, and the schedule will mark the light that the photographer will have and it deserves that we dedicate the necessary time.
Pro tip: light, location and time are almost as important as the photographer and the model
Depending on the available space, it may be necessary to have artificial light (spotlights or flashes) to improve the lighting or even to counteract very intense natural light. H2 Photography Studio offers photoshoot studio rental at affordable prices. You can hire them!
Today we bring you some tips that we usually apply when choosing locations for our photo sessions. Choose location according to the type of photography we are looking for! The first point before choosing a location is to know the type of photography we are looking for.
Thus, in a corporate portrait such as your Linkedin photo, the only thing that matters is the portrayed. We will look for a location with good lighting but without paying too much attention to the environment.
However, in a brand photography session (either personal brand or business lifestyle) we will use the environment and location to support and promote the image you want to convey to the world.
The photographer you choose will be able to advise you. It will help you choose a well-lit space with enough space to have a good session. But you always have to keep in mind that the final location must be aligned with your personality and brand image.
The simplest: localization for corporate portraits
The simplest location is the corporate portrait. For this type of photography, which you will use in your Linkedin profile or in the professional email signature, you are the center of attention.
Corporate portrait location
The best location for a corporate portrait is a smooth wall. We will simply look for a smooth wall in a well-lit area with enough space. This allows the photographer to take close-up or half-length photos.
The choice of wall color will also depend on the lighting and the model. Light backgrounds are preferable (and easier to come by), although photos with a ready-made background in your corporate color can work very well. The darker backgrounds or textures, accompanied by adequate lighting allow more artistic portraits corporate and personal.
Rent a studio
When your usual workspace is not a viable option, one of the best alternatives to do a corporate photography session is to rent a professional studio. Always read customer reviews on H2 Photography Studio to finalize the best decision.
It is a safe bet since you have enough space and also, in most cases, you have lighting and additional material (screens, flashes, etc.) for the session.
When thinking of a photo studio, many think of the typical black or white infinite background studio, which can be a bit cold. But the truth is that lately it is easier to find studios that have different backgrounds and low studio rental costs, with more personality and even with additional props and for photos.
It is not difficult to find sofas, computers or work tables that can give that point of personality to your corporate session
