This is where we get out of the studio setting and into the real world. While many places can make for an interesting background, we most commonly take environmental portraits in a person’s everyday workspace: factory, hospital, store, office, etc. These settings are meant to complement the subject, highlighting their character and offering a more personal look at who they are.
The advantage of being in your own element is that it can help you feel more relaxed. When you feel at ease, it will show through in the final product as confident and professional. These portraits also give a peek at your personality, allowing customers to bond with you and get a feel for who you are.
