Senior Photographs, Pictures
High school seniors want a different and creative photo to show who they are as they prepare to venture out into the world. Traditional senior photos are outdated. Photographers must be creative in their attempts to represent seniors about to graduate.
When interviewing a senior photographer, be sure the style is compatible with the person. Ask the photographer what his or her ideas are, and if necessary bring a list of ideas to help convey what it is that is truly wanted.
The photographer should make an attempt to offer a representation of the student that parents can approve of while still making the student happy. This representation will last for the rest of the student's life so its importance cannot be underestimated.
Try to find the photographer who is most flexible and is willing to go the distance for the student. If a student wants an off location for his or her portrait, is the photographer willing to accommodate them? A photographer who is willing to do so is most likely the photographer who will get the best results.
It is important that the photographer make the student feel comfortable. An uncomfortable situation shows on film or on digital media. Take the time to speak with the photographer and ask him or her questions. Get to know the person as well as possible so that the friendly association is evident and the student is comfortable.
Most high schools have their own photographer who most likely can take excellent senior photos. If the parents and students agree that that isn't what they want for a senior portrait, photographers can be found online and in the phone book as well as through photographic organizations.
