In order to become a successful family portrait photographer like Eloise from Eloise Photography in Pretoria, one requires numerous skills and talents, the most obvious one being the aptitude to operate a camera proficiently. However, the ability to relate to people of all types and ages, a love of fellow human beings and the knack of putting them at ease is the factor that makes all the difference in the quest for a perfect portrait.
Many people freeze in front of the camera lens, and nothing detracts from a picture like a frozen, unnatural grin or awkward expression and posture, particularly because portraiture centres on faces. When the subject feels comfortable, relaxed and at ease, the magic begins. This is particularly true when the picture includes children and babies, whose expressions can change in a single moment, making timing vital too.
