There are many things you need to create a beautiful in studio portrait. One is light and the other is a subject. Often, we are not lucky enough to know our subjects before they sit in front of our camera.
Being in front of a camera can be uncomfortable but it doesn't have to be. Watch me photograph children ages eighteen months through fifteen years old that I have never met before. I also did not meet them BEFORE they were in front of the camera.
I am going to show you what complete command of your lighting and your connection looks like.
With these two things, you will never ever be nervous about shooting a portrait of someone you have never met.
