Taking a great reference photo is surprisingly simple. I have people asking me what makes for a good photo all the time through my custom portrait business so I figured I'd share some super easy tips with you today as well.
90% of your success will come from shooting in proper lighting, which I'm going to show you how to do using nothing but natural light with any digital camera.
There are four main things to remember: lighting, location, position of the subject, and focus/ focal point. I'm going to go over all four in an easy to understand way.
Feel free to drop me a comment if you have any other questions about my portrait reference methods!
And if you'd like a little more info on getting your own portrait drawn by me check out my other website here.
