For the past few years of high school, you’ve sat for yearbook pictures in front of a plain backdrop, trying not to blink, with your head cropped in a sea of of your fellow classmates. They’re so generic, but now your senior photos give you a chance to stand out and with the help of a professional photographer you get to showcase your style.
To make the best of your senior photos, I’m sharing five tips with you.
- Skin – Taking good care of your skin should start weeks before your senior pictures. We’ll take care of stubborn blemishes, but reducing shine in Photoshop takes a lot of time so come prepared with rice paper to dab off any excess oils. For ladies, a matte finishing powder can help.
- Hair – “Messy hair, don’t care.” Contrary to popular belief, floppy hair is not cool. Would you want to look back at your pictures and think, “What was I thinking?” Of course not! For minimalists, a simple brush through works just fine.
- Nails – Digital cameras capture a lot of detail. Be sure to cut away any dead skin, file uneven nails, and remove chipped nail polish. A little bit of lotion on dry hands works wonders.
- Clothes – Make sure your clothes are wrinkle free and don’t have any visible logos. Also, consider where and when you’ll be taking your pictures. The area and weather play a big role in how comfortable you look in your pictures. Heels can get stuck in dirt, strong winds can make dresses above the knee fly up, blazers can be too hot in the summer.
Look over these tips the night before or morning of your session and you’ll look polished and confident in your senior photos.
