There is great debate over what defines a portrait. Although both lifestyle and studio photography are examples of portraits, they have different purposes. It’s easier for you to know which style to choose from when you know the objectives of the photo shoot. Here are the differences between the two styles and tips on how to make the most out of your photos.
Lifestyle photography is about capturing moments of people as it happens naturally. The goal is to document their life, not to recreate it. The photographer will keep things as organic as possible, though some direction may be needed. This helps the personality of the person being photographed to shine through.
Photographers use controlled elements in studio photography, like lighting, backgrounds, props, and poses. They are still able to capture the client’s personality, even when it is staged.
