1. IDENTIFY YOUR CAMERA
Get to know your camera just like you just knew a woman who caught your attention. The point is to know the strengths and weaknesses of your camera. For example, by knowing the ISO limit on the camera; when the lighting starts to blur; and make notes for these things, then you can improve the ISO quality to the highest value. Knowing the ISO capability on the camera will really help you in shooting at night.
To start shooting, choose your position and in front of the light so you can make a dark shadow that fits or fits. The right dark shadow can produce a good black background in shooting. And to maintain such a setting, you can use whatever things can be used, for example by using a bookshelf.
Light is very important in every photo shoot, both indoors and outdoors. Without light, the resulting photo looks dead / less attractive. Therefore, before taking a photo, publish a list of lights that will be used. Place the light in the shooting location slightly above the head of your model. Also, position the lamp to the right of your model. Storing a light like this can make your photos look classic and beautiful. There are many techniques that you can try. So, create properly without any limited limits.
4. CLOSED SPEED
Set your shutter speed relatively fast. Even at 1/160 seconds at f / 2.8, and ISO 500.
Use a tripod to enable the camera to avoid interference. Because by using the help of a tripod, taking pictures in the room will be easier and provide sharp and interesting photos.
Take a few pictures to make sure and test some things in your camera such as lighting on the subject, background, and other general settings. If you are satisfied with the settings, then you can run a photo session. It is a good idea to always express and express what you will use with your model.
Remember, you will find a camera at each shooting location, because setting different lighting angles will produce different effects. So what you have to do here at any time before the photo shoot, try every different position and see the lighting angle that suits you. That right angle.
Large amounts of light can produce unwanted shadows and also damage the shooting in the room you are doing. Now what should be done? Use a reflector (light reflection device) on the opposite side of the light source, because the reflector works to reflect the light found in the right amount of the subject.
8. BALANCE OF COLORS
White balance is balance in color settings. Most photographers use the auto white balance setting in shooting, and it turns out that it is very good inside and outside the room. Also, there are several types that are sent directly to white balance, if you suddenly want to use orange, yellow, or blue in shooting. That is why, it is very important to take time to change settings before you take a photo shoot.
9. OPEN THE WINDOW / DOOR
Position your subject close to the open window or door at the photo shoot, because you are very happy and give a little difference with other shooting tricks! If the subject and the face of the window, adjust the pose of the subject you want, for example by tilting your head slightly to the left, or also by tilting your body slightly to the left, then your photo will look good and provide its own charm. So, position your model with an open window or door
10. USE AMBIENT LIGHT
Ambient light is the amount of light available at the shooting location. Making use of the available ambient light at the scene is an important thing that every photographer needs to remember. Whether it’s a lamp on a coffee table or a window, everything can help when you are doing indoor lighting. Remember, if you need an image using yellow, orange, or blue, then set the white balance mode setting on your camera.
11. WATCH THE SHOT PLACE
There is nothing more disappointing than finding that our shots aren’t good enough. This is due to a lack of attention to our shooting location. For example, you want to take a picture of your model using a beautiful landscape of rice fields / fields, but it turns out that without you paying attention, it turns out there is a pole embedded in the field that only appears in a close position, then the good photo you get became disabled because of the pole. This certainly makes you annoyed. That is why, it is necessary to ensure everything before taking a photo shoot, because small things like indoor lighting ropes, indoor carpet ends, and other small objects that are not visible at a distance away can have a significant effect on the quality of your photos . Make every mistake a lesson, and always learn from the mistakes that you made to become a reliable and great photographer.
12. USE ONE LIGHT SOURCE
If the place where you take a photo produces enough amount of natural light, then turning off every light from the lights in the shooting room will give a good and clean picture. Because in general when natural and artificial light are combined it will cause the photo to be blurred, yellow, or blurred.
If you want to provide additional light to your shooting room, then you can change your settings to auto white balance. So, use one light source to make your subject clear and clean
