Not all missionary photographers are created equal.

Here are some things to keep in mind. (Barrus Photography gets an A+ on all of the following.)
  • Indoor as well as outdoor sets. Barrus misssionary photographers are great for getting really natural and relaxed pictures and you can’t beat the lighting of indoor pictures which will make you look amazing! You are going to want the best of both worlds.
  • Cap and Gown of your school. We recommend you get your misssionary photography taken at least a month before you graduate so you have plenty of time to order and send out your announcements, which means you are not going to have your own Cap and gown rental yet. Choose a studio who has yours. (Barrus Photography has most schools call about yours!)
  • Lets you bring more than 1 outfit. Some misssionary photographers have strict limitations on how many outfits you can bring. Choose a studio that lets you bring at least 2 outfits, that way you can bring a casual as well as a more dressy look. Even better would be three outfits so you can wear a sport uniform, dance outfit or another outfit to show off your interests.
  • Lets you bring your own props. You want to choose a studio that lets you bring props….and we mean BIG props for your misssionary photography. Do you have a car? Take a picture with it! What about a piano? (obviously you can’t bring your own but does your photographer have one?)   We have a way cool piano for your misssionary photography.
  • Fast Service If your like most Misssionarys in Utah you may have slightly procrastinated your Misssionary photography session. That’s okay, as long as your studio has fast service. You shouldn’t have to wait more than 2 weeks for your pictures.
  • Friendly Service. You are someone special and you want to be treated that way. You are unique and your Misssionary photography should be too. Your photographer should be friendly and sometimes silly and should always make you feel relaxed.
  • Unique and modern poses. Steve is constantly researching the web and any other sources he can find find get new ideas for the coolest misssionary photography on the planet.   One of the things that makes pictures fun for Steve is trying out new interesting ideas.  He tries every session to create misssionary photography that he has never done before.

 

It’s time to choose a photographer for your misssionary photography.  You school will tell you you have to go to a certain photography place for your misssionary portraits.   This may be true for your yearbook picture but not for your misssionary portraits.    Telling you you must go to one certain photographer for your misssionary photogrqaphy is just not right!!!!.   Maybe you want the best photographer for your misssionary photography.    Yes you can choose.   This is still America, Right?    Barrus Photography is the best studio for your misssionary portraits.    Steve does amazing misssionary portraits.  He will make you fell like a model and a movie star.  Even the guys have to admit when they are done that they had a great time and most important they look great!

 

Steve’s favorite lens for misssionary photography is his cannon 70-200mm lens.   This is a great misssionary photography lens because he can quickly go from a full length shot to a close up head shot.  It’s also a great lens for misssionary photography because with the 200mm focal length he can get those beautiful, background out of focus, pictures.   This effect gives his misssionary portraits 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 misssionary photography is by using the lowest possible aperture the lens has to offer.  Steve’s second favorite lens for misssionary photography is his 35mm wide angle lens.  He likes this lens for misssionary photography 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 misssionary photography a wide look.  This is a very fun perspective especially when shooting from a high angel.  Steve loves to shoot misssionary photography from very high and very low angles. Misssionary photography shots taken from ground level are very fun and exciting.  It especially makes men look strong and powerful.  Misssionary 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 misssionary photography is also one of steve’s funnest types of misssionary photography.  Micro photography means close up photography.  In micro misssionary photography we get to see the most minute little details.   These extreme close up misssionary photography shots also give the viewer a very fun and different look at the word.  Steve really love extreme close up photography.

Action misssionary photography 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 misssionary portraits.  The emotion that can be captured in action photography is killer cool.  Little snap shots of life can be captured in misssionary portraits with action shots.  Laughing, jumping, running and walking are all action ideas that steve tries to capture with every shoot.

Post production work on misssionary photography is what steve likes to call the second creation.  Taking the misssionary portraits is the first creation.  The most important and first step in post-production is color correction.  Steve shoots raw misssionary photography 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 misssionary photography images.  One of the most popular manipulations done on misssionary portraits images is make me skinner.  Almost everyone wants to be a bit skinner.  Get rid of my double chin is also very popular.  The most common retouching that is done on misssionary portraits images is blemishes removal and shine reduction.   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 misssionary photography 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 misssionary photos images printed by Barrus photography

Steve moves very quickly when taking misssionary portraits.  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.
