Lets talk about professional portraits and lighting!!!
I just wanted to take a moment and show a side beside comparison between a natural light photograph and using supplemental lighting in portrait photography. I am a firm believer that professional portraits need professional lighting. It makes all the difference between a good portrait and a great, professional , polished portrait. I have been using off camera lighting now for over 5 years. It has made all the difference in my portraits. They are crisper, cleaner and more vibrant. All of the things I love in my portraits. It also allows me to photograph in areas that many photographer's simply can't. It adds those beautiful catch lights to your eyes and brightens them. Natural light can be beautiful, but can limit what you can do and often leaves the eyes in shadow and dark and lifeless. Off camera lighting also allows me to achieve those amazing sunset and city view pictures over Richmond, VA. I know that this sets me apart from many photographers. I believe you deserve the best and that is what Kimberly Hise Photography strives to provide. I would love to photograph your senior pictures , family portraits and children. I serve Richmond, Chesterfield, Midlothian and even travel to unique location's .
