Another important reason  missionary 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 2 years! They need a nice formal picture of you to look at while you are on your mission. Your ward will also enjoy looking at your missionary photos plaque while your gone (girls included! So you want your missionary photos  to look good! Just kidding…)


Everybody has a camera, but there is a big difference between a snap-shot and a professional missionary photo. Below are some examples of missionary photos from Barrus Photography, a professional portrait studio located in Sandy. We recommend Barrus photography for your missionary photos  for the following reasons:

We love missionary phoos at Barrus photography.  We do not charge a sitting fee and also give our missionary photography sittings a 20% print discount on prints or montages purchased.   If you choose to pay the $85 dollars and own the images you will then get a 50% discount off any prints or montages you choose to have us print.   You may still choose to have us print some of your missionary photos even after you own the images because of retouching.  The missionary photos on your cd are color corrected but they are not retouched.  Our missionary photos and missionary montages rock.

everyone love their missionary photos taken at Barrus photography in utah

Steve’s favorite lens for missionary photos is his cannon 70-200mm lens.   This is a great missionary 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 missionary photos because with the 200mm focal length he can get those beautiful, background out of focus, pictures.   This effect gives his missionary 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 missionary photos is by using the lowest possible aperture the lens has to offer.  Steve’s second favorite lens for missionary  photos is his 35mm wide angle lens.  He likes this lens for wedding 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 missionary photos a wide look.  This is a very fun perspective especially when shooting from a high angel.  Steve loves to shoot wedding photos from very high and very low angles. Missionary photos shots taken from ground level are very fun and exciting.  It especially makes men look strong and powerful.  Missionary 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 Missionary photos is also one of steve’s funnest types of wedding photos.  Micro photography means close up photography.  In micro missionary pictures we get to see the most minute little details.   These extreme close up missionary 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 missionary photos is what steve likes to call the second creation.  Taking the missionary photos is the first creation.  The most important and first step in post-production is color correction.  Steve shoots raw missionary  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 missionary photos images.  One of the most popular manipulations done on missionary 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 missionary photos images is blemishes removal and shine reduction.  missionary 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 missionary 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 missionary photos images printed by Barrus photography

Action missionary 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 missionary pictures.  The emotion that can be captured in action photography is killer cool.  Little snap shots of life can be captured in missionary 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 missionary 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.
