My friend and I decided that we would try a self-assignment that we thought was impossible. We wanted to try to take a decent portrait outside on a bright sunny day. We grabbed our cameras and we took a Photoflex 5 in 1 MultiDisc 32” reflector and headed out to see what we could find. We love to shoot photos outside, but the glare is nonstop and sometimes it just causes more issues.

The main thing to remember when striving to succeed in photographing portraits is to always capture your subject’s best side. Shoot your subjects as joyful, optimistic, happy and relaxed to capture emotions or behaviors that are positive. By doing this, you’ll be approaching success in capturing appealing images. In addition, you can take images of your subject when they appear more serious or focused. As an example, taking an image of a musician playing an instrument. Your musician may not attempt smiling or they may not even acknowledge your presence but obviously, you’re capturing them deep in concentration, doing exactly what they love the most. This can make for emotionally and artistically rich images. Of course, posing your subjects is also important.
