Beauty Bridal Portraits

Here is a quick and effective way to get beauty-dish lighting in a compact space. It can be cumbersome to lug beauty lighting into a small hotel room but using this portable lighting trick we can achieve a similar look for a fraction of the price.


Using a Westcott 5-in-1 Reflector, cut out the center in a rectangular shape so that it looks almost like a donut, making sure that the silver side is on the outside. Using a macro lens, shoot through the reflector with a white window as your backdrop and there you have it: a simple and powerful lighting tool that will give you consistently stunning beauty shots of your bride.
