Not all of us have the luxury of an expansive studio space that we can fill with equipment and in which we can endlessly experiment. This great video shows to make the most of a very small studio space to light and shoot highly professional portraits.
Coming to you from Jeff Rojas, this great video shows how he shoots portraits in his small studio space (60 square feet) in his apartment. Whether you're first starting out or you're a pro who simply doesn't have a large, dedicated studio space, it can seem frustratingly difficult to achieve professional results when you're using something like a spare bedroom or office space, which is why I appreciate Rojas' approach so much, as it shows that with the proper technical knowledge and some careful thought about how you're doing things, you can accomplish quite a bit. It's particularly well-timed for me, as I'll be shooting 50 headshots in a very small recording studio next month, and I will have to make the same sorts of considerations Rojas does, but even if you don't normally shoot in such a space, I recommend watching the video and trying it, as it'll really push your lighting skills.
