Top tip Create an even lighting setup
Your overall frame will be busy with many different elements, so you don’t want to confuse your audience’s eye by including dramatic lighting. Heavy shadows are also likely to shift slightly as your model moves around between each shot. Instead use evenly-diffused light to ensure minimal shadows. This will also mean that your photos will blend into each other seamlessly, rather than jarring in the grid. To create an evenly-lit high-key setup, use two lights with softbox diffusers attached. Place them in front of your model, both pointed inwards towards the face. This will create a flat and even light that will work perfectly for your portrait grid.
