On location / Pieces of the puzzle
1 Natural light
We shot our set of portraits outdoors on a cloudy day. This soft and diffuse natural light is flattering and even, ensuring each frame looks consistent.
2 Different angles
Ask your subject to move in between frames. Shoot them straight on, in profile, or position them at 45 degrees. Crop out clothing for a strong shape.
3 Zoom lens
Vary the crops as you shoot, with some frames in tight to different parts of the face and others further away. A zoom lens will help you with this.
4 White wall
To create a strong shape to the head, a simple, clean backdrop will work best as it helps to define the shape of the face. We used a plain white outdoor wall.
