Part of the challenge of environmental portraiture is providing your subject with context around them to make the image compelling, yet still bringing the viewer’s eye to them first. There are many ways to emphasize your subject, and this great video tutorial will show you how using two of the most powerful methods: composition and post-processing.
Coming to you from our good friend, Pye Jirsa, with Adorama TV, this great video tutorial will show you how to draw attention to your portrait subject through composition and post-processing. If you haven’t tried environmental portraiture before, it’s really worth taking the time to capture it. Not being able to rely on a shallow depth of field will not only test your composition, but also make you a stronger storyteller. And through that, you will become a more versatile and capable portrait photographer. On top of that, it’s a very interesting thing! Check out the video above for the full synopsis from Jirsa.
