Too often, photographers rely on natural lighting for the majority of their portraits. Although natural light is an integral part of a photographer’s repertoire, it is also the factor that is least reliable and often changing. Here is where a good photographer can shine by utilizing different lighting sources in their arsenal.
When it comes to photography, it is getting harder to distinguish yourself just from posing and camera equipment. What is left is uncharted territory for many photographers – lighting. Whether it be strobes, speed lights or LED constant lighting, artificial lighting can be used to really distinguish your look.
Are you stuck in a rut? Do you keep working with the same background and getting the same results? Why not diversify your Savage seamless background options for more inspiration!

This makes my sessions much more fun for my subject and emotionally grabs them and their friends when they view my images.
