I have been a photographer and taking images for over 40 years. The tremedous amount of images I have acumulated over the years both with film and digital medium, numbers in the hundreds of thousands. Knowing what the best shots are, well that's an art well fine tuned over time, and to me is just as important as taking the picture itself. My experience over the years has showed me is that sometimes people have a difficult time choosing images of themselves, as I do of myself when photographed.
Slight variations in camera angle or body postioning, along with lighting and background changes, can make a person look very different. During a photo session, I like to move around alot and give out directions, along with having my client move and change their positions. My goal is to acheive a good variety of photos to choose from when I am in the editing phase. The way I am able to accomplish that is I shoot a variety of types of shots as the session progresses, from a tighter headshot to maybe a more reflexed three quarter look, or maybe a horizontal as opposed to a vertical. These are all split second decisions my eye and my brain make as to when to push that button on the camera.
So as far as editing goes, my clients can choose whatever images they like the best, but I always let my clients know what I think are my best images from the session, and it is usually a combination of good facial expression, good body and camera angle, and of course....good lighting,
