by Oct 8, 2020Model Resources0 comments



I was able to capture some video while on location shooting three days of headshots for a local private Christian school. In this video I’ll share how I set things up, my camera settings, and other tips and tricks for getting great images quickly without losing your mind!
I’ll show a floor plan of how things are arranged and share tips for getting good exposure on a wide range of skin tones.
