Step 3: Find the very best lighting
If you are taking photos inside, try to find a place with natural light. You don’t need fancy equipment. If you are taking photos outside, do it 2 hours before the sun sets.
Step 4: Pick your colors
Don’t just wear anything from your closet. It’s now time to make a decision and plan out your color scheme. Pick 3 colors you want your website to have. This will make outfit picking much easier. (Feel free to head to the mall during this step).
Step 5: Pre-plan your looks and locations
I recommend having three outfits ready to go. What is going to make you feel great and confident? If you feel great, you will take better photos.
What are you most comfortable in? If you don’t wear pants normally, don’t wear a pantsuit in the photo shoot. Wear what you love. You also probably want a formal dress shot, and then maybe a more comfortable shot. Whatever matches your style, do it.
