PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
If you already have a good DSLR, there isn't much additional kit that you need to get started taking fantastic portrait photography. However, if you want to take things to the next level there are few tricks you can try.
Try placing translucent objects in front of your lens for cool effects. Objects that work well for this are either see-through, or translucent such as jewellery and CDs (remember those?). The photo above was taken with a CD placed just in front of the lens. This reflects the light from the sun, giving the portrait an ethereal light flare and a coloured tint.
Smoke grenades can look awesome too, but be careful and use them outside on days with no wind – your subject needs to remain visible. You can also use solid objects such as leaves and flowers, but these are best placed around the edges of the frame. This can create a sense of intimacy in your portraits, which can work very well for romantic couples photographs. The key to making these techniques work is to keep the accessory close to the lens so it drops out of focus.
