Photographer Exposes The Truth Behind Professional Portraits

You know those "professional" portraits you see on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook that make you say "gee whiz, that is one purrrrty picture! That photographer must be a real pro!"?

Well, they're real pro all right- real pro at staging a scene and selling it as a spontaneous situation or some sort of photographic magic.

And once you've seen the behind-the-scenes truths about how these "pro" shots are made, as revealed by Brazilian photographer Gilmar Silva in his series LUGARXPHOTO, you'll be able to enhance your own photo shoots with these pro tricks.

I love all the imaginative ideas pro photographers come up with for baby photos but most of the setups seem like pure torture for the poor little baby. However, after seeing how Gilmar creates these shots I'm totally on board the baby photo train, woohoo!

Photoshop has ruined the professional photographers career.

I have a friend who is a cameraman for the news department at NBC. He has worked at NBC since 1975. When the advent of personal High Definition Video cameras came upon the scene, he said "everybody thought they were a cameraman".

Now that everyone has a video camera in their cellphones, the quality of a great photographer is pretty much lost to the eyes of the general beholder... people are now use to looking at S**t that substitutes for skill, talent and perfection.
