What does portrait photography include?
Our professional portrait photography service focuses on capturing a person's facial features while emphasising on their identity, personality and emotions. It doesn't necessarily need to take place in a studio; it could be taken outdoors or indoors, at the park, in a garden, or anywhere as long as it won't distract the portrait subject. If you're planning to get a professional portrait photo, here are some of the services that you can book from us:
Black and white portrait photography
Black and white portrait photography remains a long-standing favourite in the world of photography. Even in this digital age, it is the only genre that can produce the most dramatic and soulful photos. Our portrait photographers can plan the perfect B&W setting for you. Skilled and professional, they know the best way to balance the light and darkness for maximum impact.
Creative portrait photography
With creative shots, our creative portrait photographers step out of the usual static pictures. For a twist, they may use a few props, a unique costume, or a backup story. They may also take photos in different angles–from the ground, side, or even from behind. If you want to know how they produce creative portraits, you can ask your photographer to give you a few samples before you proceed with the photoshoot.
Studio portrait photography
While it seems similar to headshot photography, studio portrait photography is a little less formal and it presents photos in a more artistic way. For this shoot, your photographer handles the lighting scheme, the backdrop, the combinations of colours and textures. All you have to do is show up with your best look and outfit, and prepare your unique poses.
Light portrait photography
The key to successful light portraits is mastering the different lighting patterns and techniques. Even with just a single light, your photographer can produce portrait photos with that focus on all sorts of emotions. But that's not all. They can also take creative shots using reflective props such as fairy lights, lamps, prisms, or disco balls. With the right camera settings adjusted to the lighting requirements, you can enjoy a stunning light portrait photo that is worth space in your social media, or your photo book.
Editing and Printing
Through our platform, you'll find skilled Taskers who can also assist you with the photo retouches and editing. According to your needs, they can remove any unwanted details, add artistic effect, modify lights and tones, and more. Edited photos are sent through email or with a USB stick. Want them on canvas? Our Taskers can also organise printing of your final portrait photos and deliver them straight to your doorstep.
