Photo Tips: Directing

I've had some questions about photography recently so I figured every once in a while I'll share a few things I've learned with you guys. 
One important thing to practice is being able to direct the people you are taking pictures of. A lot of times people don't feel comfortable unless you give them a bit of direction on what to be doing with well...themselves.  
To get more fresh spontaneous pictures think of verbs to direct them with.
Look up
Now go out there and grab a friend and direct the heck out of 'em. If you try out these tips send them my way! I'd love to see them!

P.s. Isn't this girl smokin'. We had a little photo shoot together last week and even though it was freezing cold and rainy this girl still managed to look dang hot!


  1. The first and the last picture are amazing!!!
    Thanks for the tips, now I just need to find a someone who doesn't look like a deer caught in the headlights when the camera turns thier way.....*sigh*

  2. Great pics!! She looks beautiful.

    Thanks for the tips. Little does My Hubs know he is in for an after work photo shoot! :)

  3. I hate to be the one to tell you this, but you forgot "Smise"...seriously Sarah I expect more from you! Tyra would be mortified.

  4. gotta git the hubs on board--these are fabulous tips!

  5. very nice pictures! she looks like she had lots of fun!! (even it was cold)
