Another important reason  militiary photos  is for your family and loved ones to hang on to a piece of you while your gone. It’s hard on parents to see their kids leave them for  years! They need a nice formal picture of you to look at while you are on your mission. Everybody has a camera, but there is a big difference between a snap-shot and a professional military photo.

Steve’s favorite lens for military photos is his cannon 70-200mm lens.   This is a great military photos lens because he can quickly go from a full length shot to a close up head shot.  It’s also a great lens for military photos because with the 200mm focal length he can get those beautiful, background out of focus, pictures.   This effect gives his military photos almost a three dimensional  look. This is a look that the normal eye cannot see.  Steve likes to present to the viewer a view of the  world that he or she is not ever seen before.  Another way to create this look in wedding photos is by using the lowest possible aperture the lens has to offer.  Steve’s second favorite lens for military photos is his 35mm wide angle lens.  He likes this lens for military photos for the same reason he likes the 200mm lens.  It also gives the viewer a look at the world in a way that the normal eye cannot see.  The 35mm lens of course gives steve’s military photos a wide look.  This is a very fun perspective especially when shooting from a high angel.  Steve loves to shoot military photos from very high and very low angles. Military photos shots taken from ground level are very fun and exciting.  It especially makes men look strong and powerful.  Military photos shots taken from a very high angel are also extremely interesting.  Steve has a ladder in the studio he love to use for taking shots from a very high angle.

Micro military photos is also one of steve’s funnest types of military photos.  Micro photography means close up photography.  In micro wedding pictures we get to see the most minute little details.   These extreme close up military  photos shots also give the viewer a very fun and different look at the word.  Steve really loves extreme close up photography.

Post production work on military photos is what steve likes to call the second creation.  Taking the military photos is the first creation.  The most important and first step in post-production is color correction.  Steve shoots raw military  photos images not jpgs because a raw file is almost like a negative.  It allows you to adjust the exposure and color balance post-production.  After the photographs are properly color corrected then the fun begins.  With photoshop there is a endless amount of manipulation that can be done on military photos images.  One of the most popular manipulations done on military photos images is make me skinnier.  Almost everyone wants to be a bit skinnier.  Get rid of my double chin is also very popular.  The most common retouching that is done on military photos images is blemishes removal and shine reduction.  Military photos fly away hairs can also be taken care of quite easily.  Sometimes we fix clothing.  For example when someone does not wear the right color shirt we can change the color of the shirt to match with the rest of the people in the photograph.  Retouch is only done at Barrus photography studio in Utah when we make the military photos prints.  When you own your own images and make your own prints there will be no retouching  done on the images.  That is why we recommend that even if you own your images you should have the most important military photos images printed by Barrus photography

Action military photos shots are also really fun to take and very exciting to see.  Steve uses a very fast shutter speed to stop the action in his military pictures.  The emotion that can be captured in action photography is killer cool.  Little snap shots of life can be captured in military photos with action shots.  Laughing, jumping, running and walking are all action ideas that steve tries to capture with every shoot.

Steve moves very quickly when taking military photos.  He has so much experience that he doesn’t have to take a lot of time figuring out how to take each photograph.  He doesn’t take ten shots of the same picture.  He takes lots of different pictures.  If he does take more than one shot at any particular location it will be at a little different angle or possibly a closer shot to give the shot a different look.  With steve you will get lots of unique amazing shots.  You might feel like that was fast.  Yes it was fast, but the pictures will be incredible.  Steve’s speed is especially important when things get running late.  Which they do a lot.  He can still get the important shots in a short amount of time if necessary.
