Hi, everyone – I really enjoyed joining the ON1 Plus community this month for our Casual Portraits topic! I hope that this month included a good mix of topics, from lighting to technical settings to interaction to shooting fast-moving subject to posing – and, consistently, the impact of focusing on genuine expression.

Whether you are photographing your friend’s kids, your own children, your grandchildren, your niece or nephew (or just some adorable little humans you met about five seconds ago), here are a few suggestions that can help you to shoot portraits you love, no matter what the circumstance. Every tip shared below is visually demonstrated in the video clip shared here.
This video has some tips I want to share after observing my workshop students both in the field and editing. I start with some tips for approaching and composing a scene, point out some color editing you should do selectively instead of globally in Develop, discuss when to bracket for HDR, and finally talk about strategies for photographing cloudless landscape scenes.
Shooting Casual Portraits in and around The Home
This week is focused on photographing fast-moving subjects! There are few things that will help you photograph fast-moving subjects better than working with the correct shutter speed, so here’s a quick overview – or review! – on shutter speed. In my experience, the better you know the ins and outs of each aspect of exposure, the better your images will match that picture you have in your head when you take your shot.

Hi everyone! I am really excited to announce the newest ON1 Guru, Don Komarechka. He will be guest coaching the ON1 Plus community the entire month of June. I had the privilege to connect with him and learn more about his journey in photography. Please enjoy this candid interview and slideshow of photos from his master portfolio.
Shooting casual portraits is often one of the most enjoyable ways to shoot. There is not a lot of pressure to produce specific work for a client, or any pressing deadlines. It’s just a matter of enjoying the act of photography while capturing some truly priceless memories of those you care about in often a light-hearted manner.
This week we will touch on three points: aperture, interaction, and a bit on lighting.

Hi! My name is Tamara Lackey, and I am very happy to be joining you this month as a guest coach.
I have been a professional photographer for the last 15+ years and, in that time, I’ve mostly concentrated my efforts on shooting portrait, commercial and editorial work. More specifically, I have been focused on photographing children (and child-like creatures).
Hi everyone! I just wanted to say thanks for giving me some of your time in ON1 Plus this past month. This is the final video for the month. I really enjoyed doing something different with the photo makeovers. I feel like seeing how someone works through the process and what they’re thinking really helps, and hopefully, you got a lot out of this month. Oh… and thank you so much for sending in your photos for me to edit. There were so many great ones to choose from and I really enjoyed editing them.
Continuing on this month’s photo makeover series I have more edits for the photos you submitted. Thank you again for all those people that put yourself out there and sent me your photos. It was a lot of fun taking my style photos I never captured, I hope you enjoy it as well!
