top ways to inspire & spark new ideas in your photography work

As a portrait photographer working in Paris since 2012, I can attest to burnout. I was shooting weddings, couples, engagements, and private parties all over the city. Sometimes up to six photoshoots a day. What started as a dream job was soon becoming monotonous.

You can also watch the accompanying video to see all these lighting setups put into practice. EQUIPMENT First things first – you will need a camera that allows you to use full manual control. You need to be able to control your exposure triangle (ISO, shutter speed, aperture) at all times with studio work. A standard zoom lens will be fine for portraiture but…
