The Differences Between a Professional and Amateur Photographer

Oftentimes, those who are unfamiliar with the world of photography may have Glamour Shots price complaints, when in reality they are getting a great deal for an affordable price. Many people are unaware of the price that comes along with high quality portraits and are unable to recognize the difference between professional and amateur photography right away. While it may be tempting to choose an amateur for your photos, whether it's family portraits, senior portraits, or engagement photos, it's important to choose a professional photographer in order to get the high quality portraits you're looking for.

The Amateur Photographer
Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between a professional and amateur photographer to the untrained eye. However, if you look through each one's portfolio, there are minor differences that end up making a huge difference after the portrait is printed and framed. Amateur photography may look out of focus, un-centered, and may have a lot of background noise. Look at the lighting of the photo – over and under exposure are tell-tale signs of a photographer who hasn't quite gotten the hang of the art yet.

The Professional Photographer
While there are many amateurs who take good portraits, you can tell a professional portrait from an amateur portrait if you look closely enough. The composition of a professional's photos is usually very deliberate and is often unique in their framing and perspective. Are the portraits useable? Professional photographers are hired because they produce usable portraits.
