How To Make Your Photographs Feel More Cinematic | Framing + Composition

In today’s photography tutorial we cover two things: composition as well as how to make your photographs feel more cinematic. Having intentional framing and composition is key in your portrait photography. To me, having cinematic images means having images that tell a story or pull a viewer in, where it looks like the images could be stills from a movie. Paying attention to the leading lines and where you place your subject is something that will make your images stand out amongst the masses. Thank you Victoria for modeling and Susie for helping me! The digital images were taken using a Canon 5D Mark IV + Sigma 35mm art lens.

Film Photography Tutorial | Montmartre, Paris Behind the Scenes Video

This photoshoot in France was a dream come true! Golden hour and film photography is my favorite combo. We did this session in Montmartre, Paris which is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city. Harriet is a photographer from Atlanta, Georgia and was in town and modeled for me. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to watch the behind the scenes tutorial from this session. I share not only what I use to shoot on, but some posing tips, working with clients, directing your model, location scouting and what to look for in a location, as well as my editing film process and how I send my files off.

I shot on my Minolta X-370 35mm film camera and with Kodak Portra 400 film. If you are interested in booking a portrait session, you can view my portrait photography packages here! Be sure to get in contact with me to schedule your photoshoot.
