3. Decide on the location beforehand.
Choosing the location of your photoshoot is one of the most important decisions to make. The location should match perfectly with the vibe you are trying to create. If you are going for a more formal look, choose a place that has beautiful architecture and some character. There's nothing more gorgeous than brick walls and chandeliers for a formal photoshoot. If you want something more natural, think about parks or wooded areas. Also, consider the time of day and season. Are there any trees and flowers in bloom? Is it warm outside so that my clients will feel comfortable?
It is also good to consider where I will be taking the photos at each location. Some locations have natural backdrops like trees or bodies of water, while others have large buildings or beautiful architecture as backgrounds. In addition to backgrounds, another thing to consider when choosing your location is lighting! A bright sunny day can be great for outdoor sessions, but if it is too sunny (or too dark), it may not work well for your session. For example: if you want candid shots taken throughout your house with lots of windows then using flash might not give you the best results because it will wash out some parts while leaving others dark - which isn't ideal! Make sure the ambiance matches what type of portrait photography style suits you best!
