Do you ever have trouble talking with your subjects during a shoot? Not sure what to say to them to get that perfect facial expression? No need to worry, Peter Hurley is here with "Hurleyisms."
Most of you should have heard of Peter Hurley by now, especially if you are into portrait photography. Peter Hurley is well known for his art on shooting commercial headshots. You can check some of his tutorials here on Fstoppers, The Art Behind The Headshot and Illuminating The Face.
Peter now comes to us with a new site that has over 1,000 of his best one-liners to help get your subjects glowing, laughing, and smiling for their headshots. Instead of just saying “smile,” now you have something more to say to bring that life and feeling into the camera. Personally I will be using some of these lines in my future shoots, I usually am pretty quiet during my session. This is definitely one area I am trying to improve. Hurleyisms works on any iPhone, iPad, Android, or computer so there’s no excuse to not have these readily available during your shoot. Actually any device that display the website will work.
Not sure how or when to use Hurleyisms during your shoot? Check out this video explaining how to use them and get those amazing shots of your subject smiling and laughing. Granted, you usually don’t want a full session of your subject laughing the whole time, but these one-liners are sure to help when you need them to.
