Gather key ac­ces­sories in or­der to shoot the best pos­si­ble por­traits

Digital Photograper - - Techniques -


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.
