Let's talk Pockets!!

Have you ever been in a portrait session and heard the photographer say "Before we get started, let's empty those pockets".

Well the picture above is a terrific example of why we INSIST on those pockets being emptied.

In our portraits we want the eye to be drawn to the face, and when there are distractions in the image,

it takes away from the intent of the portrait.

Details matter!! In candids such as this one, this is not an issue, but this is exactly what we will see in the pictures

if those pockets are not emptied.

So that's my quick tip for the day!!
