Jeremy's Tips

1) When shooting outside, set your white balance to "shade". It just makes the skin tones look better, warmer and healthier.

2) All you really need is 1 light. There's a reason my friend Zack Arias teaches the "One Light Workshop". I take my one light with me everywhere I go and pretty much use it everywhere too.

3) Treat your subject like you would a friend. For most people, getting their photo taken is like going to the dentist. It's very awkward and uncomfortable. They hate it most of the time. So just talk to them, joke around, get to know them. You'll get better images for it.
