"Storytelling Portraits and Set Building" with Heather Harvey

Storytelling sets for portraits involves discussing how to create a visually compelling and emotionally engaging environment for portrait photography. This may include exploring techniques for finding or creating unique and meaningful backdrops, props, and lighting setups that help to build a narrative around the subject. Also delve into the importance of collaboration and communication with the subject to capture their personality and tell their story through the visual elements of the set. Additionally, discuss the role of composition and framing in conveying the desired mood and message in the final portrait. I want to inspire photographers to think creatively and intentionally about the environmental context of their portraits, and how it can contribute to the overall storytelling aspect of their work.

Heather Harvey, M. Photog, M.Artist, specializes in creative and fine-art portraiture. Her studio, Heather Harvey Photography, is based in Mansfield, Texas. Throughout her work one can see her love for people, her patience and kindness with children and families, and her passion for telling stories though her photography and artwork. Her ability to capture emotion and display artistic stories in her work are what her clients cherish most. In her own words Heather Harvey is, “just a girl who has been enormously blessed with living out my passion of telling stories and capturing moments of life through my photography.” Heather is married to her best-friend and biggest fan, a mom to two gorgeous and full of life girls, and loves all the family time she can get. Her love for photography began as a child after receiving her very first camera, a 110 film, pink barbie camera with a shiny cube flash that sat perfectly on the top. Since then she has devoted hours and hours to education and practice to not only ensure a professional and fun experience but to be able to create a beautiful piece of art.
