Studio photography allows you complete creative and technical control over your imagery, which also means all your skills and imagination are put to the test. This helpful video tutorial will give you a few quick tips to improve your studio portrait images and expand your creativity.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this great video tutorial will show you some helpful tips for improving your portrait photography when working in a studio. One thing I appreciate about the video is how Ortiz demonstrates the usage of lighting in a more creative manner as well. We very often discuss lighting in a functional manner, namely how to effectively render our subjects in a flattering way and to help separate them from the background. On the other hand, once you have gained competency in lighting, taking the time to explore its more creative usage can really level up your work and help you establish a more individual and recognizable style, plus it is a ton of fun! Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ortiz.
