Senior Picture Ideas For Guys: Creative, Artistic

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Reflection

Beyond finding the perfect pose, outfit, and theme for your senior photos, it’s also a good idea to consider symbolism and what kind of message or idea you want your senior pictures to convey.

Senior pictures with mirrors or reflections, for example, where the senior is standing in a pool of water, holding a mirror, or is cast in a reflection somewhere in the photo, can look very creative and artistic, while also symbolizing how much the senior has changed throughout their academic career.

There are plenty of ways to capture reflections in your photos. Beaches, swimming pools, puddles, and shiny surfaces, such as railway tracks, windows, and wet sand or concrete can all be used to incorporate reflections and mirror images into your graduation pictures.

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Forced Perspective

Play with distance and perspective to create images that trick the eye and the mind. You can use perspective in your photos to make things appear larger, smaller, farther, or closer than they really are.

Get creative and come up with comical or artistic ways to include forced perspective in your senior pictures. Check out this 20 Brilliant Examples of Forced Perspective for more ideas and inspiration.

Senior Picture Ideas For Guys: Photoshop Magic

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Half & Half

This is a super cool senior picture idea I found on Pinterest where two photos of one person, one taken of the model as a youth and a current photo of the model, are merged together.

This is a perfect way to embrace the past and present while showcasing how much you’ve grown and matured throughout high school. A lot of really cool stuff can be done in Photoshop, so make sure to chat with your photographer before your shoot to see what they can do.

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Multiple Poses In One Photo

I first saw this unique senior picture idea on TylerrBrown.com where seniors have their photos taken several times doing different poses. And later on, the photographer combines the poses into one photo, so it looks like there are several of the same subject in one photo.

This is a unique and fun senior picture idea that you can do a lot with. Whether you choose to hold signs that spell out your graduation date or poke fun at the idea of clones, like in this photo, is up to you.

Senior Picture Ideas For Guys: Hobby, Passion

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Music

Whether you’re in band or music is your hobby, it can be fun and comforting to incorporate music into your senior pictures. Have your photographer snap a few photos of you playing your instrument. If you can, bring your instrument to a pretty destination or hold it in front of a colorful backdrop for your senior pictures.

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Sports

If you’re really into sports, consider including them in your senior pictures. In addition to holding sports equipment and waering your uniform, you can also have your senior pictures snapped on the football field, in the gym, or wherever else you and your sports team have spent a lot of time. If there’s a colorful school mural or an award cabinet, use them as a backdrop for a few of your senior pictures.

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Books

Books are a huge part of your high school experience, so why not include your favorites in your senior pictures. Capture yourself resting alongside a stack of colorful books or have your photographer snap a few pictures of you reading. What you’re reading is up to. Try choosing something you’re interested in, comic books, newspapers, or classic literature are just a few options.

Senior Picture Ideas For Guys: School Spirit

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: School Colors

Incorporate a ton of balloons that match your school colors into your backdrop. Wear your school uniform or something with your school logo and colors on it. Have your senior pictures taken in front of your school, a school mural, or an iconic school statue, landmark, or location.

Senior Picture Ideas for Guys: Mascot

Capture your school spirit in your senior pictures by having a few of your photos taken alongside your school mascot. Wear your school uniform, if you have one, or wear an outfit that matches your school colors.

Make your senior pictures even better by striking a funny pose with your high school mascot. To make your senior pictures even more unique, try incorporating clubs or extracurricular activities you’re a part of in your mascot senior picture.
