Getting your portrait photos done in the summer can be tricky, especially here in Texas. The temperature can get into the 90’s, which for some, can be uncomfortable. Having the ability to use the elements of sunsets, sunrises, and golden hours for your portrait setting is very encouraging, but you’ll have to prepare for the heat and what to wear to your photo session.
Here are some portrait photo tips for professionals, artists, and more looking to get their photos taken in the summer in Texas:
Utilize the Indoors for Your Headshots
When it comes to executive portraits and headshots, it’s not a bad idea to utilize your workspace and office. You don’t need to get outside and pick the perfect sunset setting for these types of portraits because it might not be relevant. Pick areas at your business, workspace, or office to portray your professional self.
Get Creative! You’re an Artist
As an artist such as an actor, musician, or another type of artist, you also don’t have to take your portraits outside. You can utilize the photographer’s studio, your own artistic space, or another indoor venue to portray yourself in a beautiful way.
If you do decide that the outdoor setting is right for your headshots and portrait photos, make sure to follow some of these tips to make the summer heat bearable for your photo session.
- Wear comfortable and light clothing
- Bring enough water
- Bring an outfit change if it gets too hot
- Pick Golden hour and sunset times for cooler temps
- Trust in your professional photographer
