The benefit of props

How do you take portraits? Well you can look at the camera or look away. You can take a close-up or show the surroundings. The ambience may give a deeper understanding of the subject's character. However today I will consider props.

If you have something to do then there is a much smaller possibility that you are conscious of the camera and become nervous. Fortunately Connor is a natural in front of the camera. He doesn't need any props for this reason but props can still be used as this gives meaning to the photo and a different expression. In this case it is a "would you like a chip" expression.

Happy snapping
