Portrait Photography Tips: Taking Fun Portraits


It’s always fun to shoot portraits. Whether you’re using 35mm or 120 film, the results are really satisfying, especially when your subjects are happy with the result too! Let’s take fun portraits!

Here are some fun and hopefully useful tips for taking portraits:

1. Shoot your subjects against a white background!

I love to do that personally! So simple!

2. Get close!

3. Let them pose for your first and you shoot right away!

4. Experiment with your subject.

Ask them to pose and move around their body. So the result won’t be “normal.”

5. Have fun while taking portraits!

I think this is the most important thing. You have to shoot with fun in mind! Don’t forget to just have fun!

Let’s go out and shoot the people your love! Have fun shooting portraits!
