Setting Up the Scene & Determining Your Lighting Setup


In this video we will jump right into our first portrait scene with our bride: photographing her makeup and prep photos. The key here is to determine where the best direction of light is in your room and then set your scene up accordingly. Notice how we spend quite a bit of time tidying up our area to ensure that everything looks picture perfect. To a certain extent, you do want to photograph the room as it appears but cleaning up odds and ends and throwing away trash will only increase the production value of your images.
