Fall Portraits

Filed under: H.S. Seniors,Portraits — admin @ 9:29 am

Fall can be a fun time to do a senior session or family portrait. The colors can add a different type of intensity to the image. However it’s still important to consider all of the elements of an image, not just “get some color in the background.” After all portraits are about people, not backgrounds.

Call now to schedule your fall portraits.

Formal Senior Portraits

Filed under: Carden Photography,H.S. Seniors,Portraits — Norris Carden @ 10:30 pm

Even though most schools have a contract photographer who takes formal yearbook pictures, I am often asked to create formal portraits as well. Some schools even allow my images to be included in their yearbook.

For a limited time, I’m waiving the creation fee for all formal senior portrait sessions. Don’t even bring your checkbook. If you don’t like my formal portraits better than the school photographer’s, there’s no commitment to buy anything.

Contact me ASAP to schedule your 30 minute formal senior portrait session!

Gina and I recently created some new images for her performance coaching web site. Many of her clients don’t meet her face to face very often, so it is necessary for us to show that Gina is easygoing and approachable (…and she really is). Here’s one of my favorites.

Demonstrating a pose

Filed under: Carden Photography,H.S. Seniors,Portraits,ramblings — Norris Carden @ 7:43 pm

One of the really fun things about creating images on location is finding all sorts of really cool and different spots to shoot. Sometimes it’s obvious how to place and pose a subject in a certain spot. Sometimes it’s not. It’s not uncommon for me to jump in and demonstrate.

Recently I was shooting on a farm and wanted to use a great looking hay barn. So to demonstrate just how I was envisioning the image, I climbed up and took the pose. Amanda, my assistant for the day, took a shot.

Then Rosalyn made it look good.
