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.
