    Default Help Needed Studio Shoot

    To person reading this,

    I would like to hear your experience in doing studio shoot... Personally i do not have any knowledge about studio shoot. Only Google around. However i felt that it's better to hear from experience people regarding this.

    My question would be:

    What should i take note of when doing a studio shoot of say about from 1-5 person?
    The do and don't.
    Important point to take note.
    Most used cam settings. f8? portrait color setting?

    Regards
    And many thanks !

    First thing.

    figure out how to trigger the studio flash with your camera.

    shutter speed is not really important
    just keep it to below your flash sync speed
    and higher to prevent camera shake

    Next, ask if the studio has a light meter. They'll tell you the aperture, shutter speed and ISO to dial in.
