In today’s behind the scenes photography tutorial I share with you over 15 different tips + tricks you can use on your next couple portrait session. From how to interact with your clients to make the photos more fun, getting both faces in focus, posing and placement, to how I focus moving shots and pose for candid walking pictures.
All of the photos in this session were edited with my ‘Red Letter Days’ preset pack! All the color images were edited using ‘Friday’ and the black and white ones were using ‘Monday’. Available as a bundle or for individual purchase!
