Gone are the days when senior pictures were all about getting into a studio, and getting oneself clicked in formal clothes. Today, the youngsters are much more individualistic, involved in a variety of activities and hobbies.
They use these pictures as a means to highlight their diverse interests and personalities. Every year, there are thousands of students who get their pictures taken. So, what is it that will stand you apart from the rest? Here are some unique tips, which you are sure to find handy.
Once you have decided on the professional, it is time to discuss three very important aspects with him: the location of the shoot, your outfits, and your poses.
Location of the Shoot
The reasoning behind choosing a good, relevant location is that a few years down the line, when you look at your photographs, they would remind you of your student life. You have the option of either choosing an indoor or outdoor place, or both of these.
Outdoors: Choose places which are an important part of your student life, such as the school's playground, any fast food joint that you frequent with your friends, or your dance class. If you are a nature lover, have a stream, or perhaps, some trees and flowers in the background. Such pictures look colorful and aesthetic.
These will act as add-ons or elements of interest, stressing on your image and personality in school. Remember, this is how others too will be remembering you, a few years later.
Grooming sessions won't go waste, as they may put you into the habit of maintaining your nails, skin, and look.
If you are into dancing, you can get a photographed clicked in a dancing pose. If you love the sun, sand, and the sea, get one clicked lying on a beach. If you are someone who likes all things classy and elegant, you can get the photograph clicked in chic clothes in a way a model poses.
Here's hoping that these original senior picture ideas have helped you pick a style for your yearbook photograph. Also remember that to get the right effect in the photographs, lighting plays a major role. So, discuss this in detail with your photographer. Ask him how the backgrounds would be (light or dark), and accordingly choose contrasting outfits.
