The Proper Use of Props in Portraiture – Free Quick Guide

The addition of a prop to a portrait session is a very easy way to bring work to life.

A prop can leave clues about the subject that would otherwise be indiscernible.

Picking out the right prop, and then placing it in just the right way within the frame, is an easily learned skill.

Just as we often make mistakes as amateur photographers with the exposure, framing, lighting choice, and locations that we choose, before learning the better way, props are the same. You will likely make mistakes when attempting to use props for the first time.

This eBook will get you started down the correct path with props.

Here is what we will cover:

  • How props can reveal the subject
  • How to tell a story through props
  • When to take the props out of the shot
