Why Hire A Professional Photographer For Graduation Portraits

It’s 2022 and we all are habituated to whipping out our smartphones and taking pictures. While that’s great when you are hanging out with friends and family members, it’s not the best thing to do when it comes to taking important pictures on special occasions, such as graduation photoshoots. Check out some of the reasons for hiring a professional photographer when it comes to taking senior portraits.

Reasons for hiring a professional photographer for graduation photoshoots

  • Experience: Most professional photographers have experience shooting photographs at a variety of events and venues, and thus they know a thing or two about taking great pictures. This is also why they are called ‘professional photographers’. Knowing the best angles or creating the right ambiance for the perfect click is an absolute must when it comes to clicking amazing senior portraits.
  • Lighting and location: Lighting and location are perhaps two of the most important aspects of any great image. It takes time for people to figure out what works best and what doesn’t. Thus, relying on a friend or a family member for something as important as a graduation picture isn’t a wise move.
  • Camera lenses: Different cameras have different lenses and all lenses are designed for different purposes. Unfortunately, smartphone pictures would never offer the same level of clarity as a modern DSLR with an appropriate lens. The actual blurry background and the super dramatic wide-angle lens definitely make images look more attractive.
  • Editing and software: Getting a great picture involves a great deal more than a mere press of a button. Nobody gives much thought to the editing process, but in reality, no picture looks as good as it does without someone putting in the extra effort to make it look the way it does. Everybody wants their graduation pictures to look amazing – it is an important moment in your lives, and for that, you’d need to have someone click great pictures and edit them further to make them all the more attractive.
  • Artistry matters: Not everyone knows the right setting for taking great pictures. In fact, not everyone sees an open field or a random bush on the side of a street and considers it a potential photoshoot spot. Sometimes, the spots may look weird, but it’s great for the picture. Therefore, artistry matters.
