A couple months ago, we decided to launch a photobooth business. As a wedding photography studio, we had most of the necessary experience, all of the require technical knowledge, and most importantly, a complementary business with preexisting clientele. But that didn’t mean that we jumped right into it without doing the proper research. In actuality, we probably spent over 40 hours of total time, researching, testing, and prepping for our first photobooth event.

Posing is one of the most difficult aspects of photography. In my opinion it’s the X factor that separates the great photographers from the good ones. Jasmine Star is known for being able to get great expressions and candid moments from her clients.

I live in Flower Mound which is a beautiful city situated north of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We’ve enjoyed some amazingly great weather this winter with many days of cloudless sunny skies and unseasonably warm weather. Perhaps it’s the result of global warming but for now I’m enjoying every minute of it.

Balance is a compositional technique in photography that juxtaposes images within a frame so that the objects are of equal visual weight. When different parts of a photo command your attention equally, perfect balance is achieved. In photography, there are two main techniques of balance you should be aware of: formal and informal. We’ll discuss the difference between each and how they can affect your photo.
Congrats to Lauree Jane Photography for winning the Bokeh Challenge! We chose this image based on a number of factors. First off, this image is a great example of bokeh, with the beautiful Christmas lights and holiday ornaments behind the cute subject. We also love the lighting and expression on the baby, and the post production is clean and tasteful. The image has a very universal, timeless appeal.
