So, what makes a good yoga photo-you know, the ones you see on the cover of Yoga Journal standing in line at Whole Foods?
If you’re a yoga instructor, you definitely know what some bad ones look like! They’ve landed in your email after a yoga photoshoot you were really psyched about until you saw the outcome. Then, you proceed to call your fellow yoga teachers to ask them, “Ummm…is this what I look like in real life”?
The answer is, “YES”, this is what you look like in real life, BUT…the photographer doesn’t know how to shoot yoga portraits. Now, if you have a sympathetic studio owner, s/he understands that not all photos are meant to be published and provides you with options to pick some you like. And for the rest of the photos, well, ask to send them away into a galaxy far far away…
The bottom line is that not all photographers are yoga photographers. We, at Kim Ponsky Photography, happen to be!
Our photographers, Kim and Gabriella, understand lighting. We know how to highlight and emphasize the shape of the body in a flattering way. Hello…did you see my photos on Facebook? Even better, check out Taryn’s below! Taryn’s yoga portraits look like none other. They’re dramatic and more of a fine art look than the traditional yoga photos you see on every studio website. Kim had this vision of what a beautiful yoga photo entails, and we’re putting it into practice. Wink.
Unlike any other photographer in the area, we offer a reflective surface. This is big for two reasons! An acrylic surface adds another element to the image itself, and it provides a “grip” similar to a yoga mat for the yogi to do postures. Other photographers offer paper to stand on or to invert-this makes holding a pose very tough.
And lastly, you need a person familiar with alignment to coach the yogi. Basically, you need me! Forget fixing the hair and pulling down the shirt, we want you to look bomb! I am not too shy to tell you where to put your foot, how to raise your arm, to engage udayana banda for the fifteenth time, and to scrap a posture altogether because that one is just not photographing well.
Are we expensive? YES. Are we worth every penny? YES. Are we right here in Cleveland? YES.
So, say “YES” to stunning yoga portraits because we’re ready for you and you want them.
Flowtography sessions are being offered at special rates up through April. After that, we’re on to our outdoor Spring Mini Session! Call us to book: 216-229-7427.
