Siletz High School, Oregon Senior Photographers Savanah just graduated from Siletz High School in the coast range.
I always feel honored when someone will drive almost two hours for me to photograph them, as that says a lot about them trusting me to do an incredible photo shoot.
We took a lot of images outside, which is typical for me, since that is what most high school seniors want for their photo shoot and their senior pictures.
I always seem to find flowers near my portrait studio, which is located in the beautiful historic district of downtown Springfield (just a 8 minute drive from the University of Oregon campus.
Lighting is always key for great high school senior photos. You want the eyes to pop-because truly they are the window to the soul.
I do like doing some work inside, because it may be the only time in someones' life that they experience a traditional studio shoot, and its quite different than natural light outside. Rather than 1-3 light sources (outside), sometimes I have 5-6 inside-so it has a whole different feel for High School Senior photographs. Plus, I can use a fan or smoke or fire and really mould the light to accent various facial features.
If you check out fashion magazines, they will be ads of not just on location photo shoots, but pictures inside a studio as well. Its good to have a well rounded portfolio for your senior pictures.
Here is a fun short trailer video of Savanah!
