I guess I consider myself somewhat experienced in the field of photography when it comes to anything but humans! I've never shot portraits before; however, I really wish to start. A friend of mine is working on a portfolio for beauty school and she wants me to photograph her make-up styles. I have a georgous model lined up and a great camera, but I haven't a clue what I'm doing! I guess these should be similar to headshots: simple, focussed and bright. I don't have very decent lighting, should I do these shots outside on a bright day with little wind and a black backdrop? Or should I invest in some lighting equipment and take the photos indoors? Any advice would be of great help!
