Noticing the Minor Details in Photography
I’m HUGE on noticing the little things. I talked about that a little bit in this blog post, and I’m going to show it more here. It’s easy to focus on the big picture, but this is all about noticing all the minor details in photography.
Bridal Detail Shots
I had such a fun time photographing this couple, and you can see another preview from their pictures in this post. These next couple photos are some of the accessories that made the picture complete. The flowers were beautiful, and as I was working with the bride I couldn’t help but notice her beautiful hair clip.
And as for this one, well, I couldn’t resist the classic bouquet and kiss picture. It had to be done.
The next shot is from a couple dressed for formal pictures. Cute shoes are some of the best minor details in photography!
Details from Dia De Los Muertos
This model’s skirt was beautiful, and I wanted to be able to showcase it. I got more details from her skirt and blouse, but I’ll just include this one detail shot for now. Focusing on the skirt and on the hat (in the following picture) instead of the models’ faces tells a story in itself. What is it telling you?
Detail shots can make or break a photoshoot. To learn more, read about The Art of a Detail Shot.
Lighting the Minor Details in Photography
This is one of my favorite shots from the evening. Using a Speedlight flash to light just my subject left everything else dark, giving a dramatic contrast. This clearly and forcibly draws the attention to Spiderman’s hands, which is the detail I wanted to draw attention to.
Minor details are everything in photography, so don’t miss them.
