This was our fourth time working with Kevin for family photos. He's so great and really has a way of putting you at ease while capturing a lot of special moments. I'm always so happy with how the photos turn out, and look forward to doing it all again next year. Thanks, Kevin!

We had a great family photo shoot with Kevin at Humber Bay Park! He was wonderful with our kids (3 & 6 yo) and he captured so many amazing shots during our hour together that it was really difficult to choose! Dave was very quick with getting our gallery ready for us to view the photos within days of the shoot. We thought the package was excellent value and would definitely be happy to book again in future!

Kevin was early which was great. He was a bit shy or awkward though and he had an awkward time trying to describe how we should pose. We were both not very comfortable with the camera but Kevin got the most out of it. They give you ALL the photos, and you only get to choose five if you buy the basic groupon so it was hard for us to choose our prints!! Overall if I want another one-off engagement shoot I would go with this groupon again, but usually engagement shoot should be included in your wedding package.

Lighting: The Key to a Good Portrait

To capture you at your best, photographers must work with a fickle apprentice—light. Check out Groupon’s overview of the ways that light makes you look good.

Shadows enveloping your neck. A double chin that shouldn’t be there. Blemishes on the forehead rather than your favorite hat. Every amateur photographer has suffered the ill effects of bad lighting. Professionals, however, understand the virtues of proper lighting in bringing out the best of their subjects, whether within the controlled world of the studio or out amid the unpredictable mercy of the outdoors.

In a studio, photographers employ a set of tools that ensures light only hits their subjects in the most flattering ways. Depending on how the subject and photographer want photos to look, shadows can either mar an otherwise great shot—by emphasizing wrinkles and imperfections—or add drama, texture, and dimension through the highlighted contrast. They can reduce the contrast by using a broad light source, which spreads the rays out over multiple directions, or soften the light with an effect—similar to the way clouds make sunlight less intense—known as diffusion. Photographers may also use multiple synchronized flashes to hit many angles at once, reducing contrast, or light subjects from a specific angle—in general, more texture and detail is visible when the light hits a subject at a greater angle, and longer, more angular shadows can add extraordinary depth to an otherwise two-dimensional portrait.

Obviously, outdoor shoots allow for less control over the light, but some techniques from the studio still work. Collapsible diffusers, for instance, help mitigate direct sunlight, and holding a reflector under the subject’s face can help rid it of any glaring shadows. The most effective tool, however, is often good planning. A photographer may decide to schedule a shoot for a specific time of day to take advantage of more flattering lighting or to ensure they won’t be shooting directly into the sun at a specific location—in which case they’ll have to pay Apollo’s exorbitant royalties.
