You see many corporate head shots in newspapers and magazines that look really boring. Sometimes they are like that due to space restrictions, but often they look boring simply because the photographer has not learned to think outside the box and do something a little different. Many commercial photographers just want to get the shot taken and go onto the next job. But to be fair, sometimes they are restricted in what they can do by the company that hires them.

However, with a little thought it is not that difficult to take some amazing and interesting commercial photos whether they are portraits of the chairman or something else. One way to do this is to play around with your flash and see what effects you can create. Another way is to include something to do with the company in the photo. Props add interest and can be quite simple.

Not all corporate photographs have to be taken indoors. Often a change in the environment can make a corporate photograph look really stunning. You can include appropriate buildings, statues, vehicles, bridges or any number of things as well as certain aspects of the natural environment to add interest.

Family portrait photography offers many wonderful chances to get your creative juices flowing. Forget those traditional photos where everyone stands in a line and smiles; there will always be one that doesn’t smile anyway. Families can be grouped on a big bed, up in a tree, around some playground equipment or in a boat. Anything that makes the photograph more interesting will do.

Children particularly have many wonderful expressions on their faces that can be captured if they are put into an unexpected or ‘cool’ environment or situation for the photo. They can hold their pet, sit in the laundry basket, or wear an unusual hat or scarf for a great shot.

With a bit of thought, wedding photographs can also be made to look beautifully different rather than just having the wedding party stand in a group. A Melbourne wedding photographer that is really interested in his work will go to great lengths to get the best wedding photos possible. While many wedding photographs are done in beautiful outdoor settings, you can still be on the lookout for that extra detail that will give photos the wow factor. A beautiful tree trunk, the rays of the setting sun, or an unusual cloud formation can often be included to make the photograph look amazing.
