The environment simply means the things that surround us or the things that surround the subject of a narrative. The subject of a narrative is the most important part of that narrative and in order to capture the essence of the subject for a portrait photographer, the environment must be captured also since there is constant interaction, both visible and invisible, between the subject and the environment.
In the world of photography, although the environment is not as important as the subject, it is important nonetheless because the skillful usage of the interaction between the subject and the environment brings out the perfect characteristics that the photographer wants to show.
The Las Vegas Portrait Photographer utilizes the environment in a skillful and professional way and captures the character of the subject in a way that showcases the personalities.
The Las Vegas Portrait Photographer uses the rule that if you are hired to photograph a tradesman who works with iron, you wouldn’t take a picture of him reading a book in a park. This means that depending on the narrative, the subject must blend with the environment.
For example, the portrait of a chef would not show the chef carrying a gun in battle or being in the cockpit of a plane, but would rather show the chef in his own environment which is the kitchen.
Whenever people see a kitchen and a chef in it, they understand instantly what the portrait is trying to portray. However, when the chef is seen in the cockpit of a plane, it causes confusion. This is simply an illustration of how important the environment is in a portrait.
By capturing a person in their professional environment, you are showing the world that your client is doing what they love best. This makes clients confident and your photograph of the client might just make the client more profits.
