After getting your standard portraits, step back and assess your scene. Are there areas in your room where you can see unique reflections or shoot through objects? These creative shots are what will help you get noticed because of the diversity they provide in your portfolio.


Getting wide with a 35mm or 24mm prime allows you to get journalistic images and environmental portraits. To create a nice story-telling format, start close, then back up with a wider lens, then go onto your widest lens and capture the scene as a whole.
