Thread: Studio photography for portrait shots

    Default Studio photography for portrait shots

    I came across this link recently and like to share with fellow clubsnappers.

    Lighting for Lingerie Photography – PictureCorrect

    I have not done any studio photography in my life and after seeing this video, I like to try. I am keen in finding out more about lighting setup. Is there a cheaper way of doing it? Does the umbrella size have an impact on the lighting itself. If i am keen in doing it, what would I need to buy?

    If you have the cash, you can consider going for classes and renting a studio and hiring a model to experiment.

    shadows can cast 3D over err...hills and valleys...

    Yes, for most people when shooting with lingerie, their brain will have less supply of blood, so need a fool proof lighting system that can operate with under such harsh condition.
