Gather key accessories in order to shoot the best possible portraits
A reflector is truly key for all portraiture; use it to bounce the light back into the model’s face to fill any unflattering shadows. Reflectors can be used for both male and female models effectively.
Similar to a reflector, a beauty dish can be used with a studio light to further illuminate a model’s face and ensure harsh shadows are lifted. They are commonly used for female portraits.
You can add some extra creativity to your portraits by adding a gobo attached to a light into your setup. Use it to create some interesting shadows across the model’s face and body.
