Lighting Setup

  1. Setup your background, setup your light(s), put your camera on a tripod.
  2. Get a volunteer and stand them where people will be standing. Shoot some test shots till everything is to your liking.
  3. Optional: If you like to tinker with manual mode, we recommend shutter speed: 1/60, aperture: 5.6 or greater and ISO 1600 or less. Adjust flash power to match these settings. Otherwise, put the camera on Program or Auto mode.
