5 Tips for Your Theatrical Photo Shoot

5 Tips for Your Theatrical Photo Shoot

1. How are your photos going to be used?

Before we get started, we’ll need to know whether you’re after 8×10 glossies, or if your photos will be going into a program booklet. Do you want a romantic look to the photos or something with a touch of malice for your character? Other factors to consider are black and white vs. color, casual vs. formal.

2. Think about your clothes, hair, jewelry, and/or make-up.

Consider how these will support the use of the photo. Feel free to bring changes of clothing (socks and shoes included!). Alert us ahead of time what colors you plan to wear so we can adjust backdrop colors. Solid colors usually look better than thin stripes or plaids. Please bring a comb or hairbrush. Remember that unless we’re shooting the cast in full costume, there’s no need to apply heavy make-up.

3. Rare is the perfect face or body.

It’s the photographer’s job to make you look your best with good lighting and editing software. So don’t fret about pimples, lines, shadows under the eyes, and so on.

Also, don’t worry about posing. We will coach you. However, if you are an actor posing in character, you may certainly bring that emotional subtext to the shoot. You might even consider performing a monologue in front of the camera.

4. Be in good health

Try to get enough sleep the night before. Your face will look brighter.

5. Have fun!

Our goal is to make this experience fun. It’s a performance free of pressure! During the shoot, remember events or people or music that make you happy. By recalling good things during a portrait session, your face will reveal your authentic self or help you relax into character.
