Five Triggers That Will Improve Your Photos – Photosanity | Arcadia & Pasadena Engagement Session Photographer

When I’m not photographing gorgeous weddings or sweet family portraits, I mentor for Photosanity, an online workshop that helps parents take better photos of their kids and get a handle on organizing, editing, and sharing those photos!

The workshop just started last week, and this week’s lesson is about what to look for to get the best photos.  We talk about five triggers that can really make a difference in your photography: emotion, significance, light, composition, and environment.

Below is a favorite photo of mine from my latest engagement session!

I adore how much love and tenderness Ginille and Kenny portray in this image (emotion).  Looking at it just makes me smile every time.  We chose a spot in open shade (light) and took advantage of the sun being low enough in the sky to come just over the brick wall, creating lovely hair light.  I placed them off-center in the frame, with Kenny at one of the vertical “thirds” (composition), and of course, we were celebrating their engagement (significance)!
