Focal Photographer: Marlboro | Victoria BC
YWIB Headshots Event
I get really nervous in front of the camera, how will the photographer ensure I’m comfortable?
It can be intimidating being in front of the camera, with a big strobe light pointed at you - but don’t worry we’ll make you feel like a movie star!
To get the perfect shot, it’s critical that the subject and photographer are comfortable and trust each other. Marlboro will put you at ease by talking with you, cracking the occasional joke and shooting while you talk. He also has some great exercises to help you relax, feel confident and find comfort in front of the camera.
Why do you use artificial lights? Why not just use natural light?
Think of photography as a language and light its vocabulary. Many “photographers” use natural light because it is easy. However, to truly compose the perfect a shot, a photographer must control the complex interplay of light on the subject. To do so, Marlboro uses multiple lights to fill the unwanted shadows and add dimension between the foreground, middle ground and background.
Is the shoot posed?
These shoots are not posed. Our photographers won't touch you, or move you around. They are directed. Our photographer will help you feel comfortable and direct you in order to achieve the perfect shot.
