Pair of people

Taking pictures of two people can be more complicated than taking picture of one. Especially if you are using lot of shadows. If you have one person on the picture, picture will be about that persons shape and pose. But if you have two people, it will be about their relationship with each other. Story is very different straight away. You want for that picture to make some kind of sense.

• One way to do that is use one person as a main subject and use other person as an extra. Example – put one person in the shape or pose you like and use other persons hands as decoration.

• Notice the way they are looking. If they look same direction then picture says that they are on same path. That is a good thing if you are taking picture of a couple. If they look at each other then they are interested in each other. If looking different directions then they are in their own paths and perhaps moving away from each other.


  • Use one as main subject, other as decoration
  • Make them do something
  • Direct their eyes
