D's Sportraits - Warlick Photography

October 25, 2016

Recently, we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz in the photography world about “sportraits.” We have lots of sports photos from our son playing soccer and decided to try our hand at creating these composites. Sportraits are a great way to showcase hobbies and sports in a cool, professional way, but they also are a great aspect of a senior photography portfolio. When we work with seniors who have played sports throughout their lives, we’ve started making sportraits part of their senior photography session package. It’s a great way to showcase their dedication to sports and interests as their high school careers are coming to an end.

Sportraits are a pretty tricky composite image. We basically cut out the photos of the athletes and place them on backgrounds. To do this carefully and seamlessly takes great time and attention, but it’s something we’ve really been enjoying. It’s all composite so it’s definitely “on trend” in the photography world. Out first sportrait project was the outcome of photos we took of our son D. He’s been dedicated to soccer since he was very young. It’s been such a big part of his life, it’s hard to imagine life without it.
