A while back I met up with my good friend Edna, who is an amazing photographer, to do a photography lesson on composition. To be honest I don’t know why she does lessons with me because her work is amazing already but I’ll take any moment to teach anyone who’s passionate about photography and getting better with a camera.
Photograph One – Edna V. – BREAKDOWN
The photo is really well balanced from the top and from the bottom. This is important in when composing a shot because you never know when your client may want to purchase a print. I always teach my photographers to shoot for print and this shot was perfectly shot with that in mind. The pose / body also forms a triangle and that is important to note because the human eye is attracted to simple shapes and if you can create those simple shapes through human poses you have won the eye. I also encouraged her to shoot from an angle so we can get the leading lines formed by the bridge and rails. This helps the viewer follow the lines to your subject.
Photograph Two – Edna V. – BREAKDOWN
Often you find yourself near a set a stairs and want to pose your subject on the steps, which is what we did here. If it’s a long stairway I always suggest to sit the model 3 to 4 steps up from the bottom to allow some space above the head. In the photo above my student Edna gave enough space to frame the subject in the stairway. This setting was perfect for applying repetition, which is another important tool to use in composition. I was able to help see the shape in the body and the repetition of the stairs for the composition.
Kudos to my student Edna, as mentioned before, she’s already an amazing photographer and sharpening up her composition skills will just make her better. You can view here work her at this link: swankyfoto

Mrs. Brinty is successful immigration attorney located in Alamo, Texas serving her community all around the Rio Grande Valley. She’s blessed to work alongside her mother Elba Rocha owner Law Office of Elba Rocha, PLLC, who is also a respected immigration attorney. Britny’s head shots were a lot fun to shoot because she can be silly and especially when she is around her sisters. I have been blessed to provide photography services on Britny and her sister Ashely’s wedding day. Returning clients are the best!

Photography and law one time collided in thought. A year or two ago I had the crazy idea of dropping photography to purse a law degree. Obviously, the photography career won but I still dream about becoming a lawyer one day and although it’s a far-off thought I still get to mix the both.
Today we photograph lawyers and I am okay with that. My relationship with the law community has been through the The Hidalgo County Bar Association, which I have had the pleasure of capturing their annual event.
This month we photographed O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, a law firm located at 220 S. Jackson Rd. in Edinburg. I really love how the photos came out for these professionals. We had a simple two light setup with a dark gray portable backdrop. We used a warm tone gel to change the background color as per the clients request. Everyone was super positive and professional and it really reflects in their portraits.
