A few friends have asked me to take their senior pictures soon. I've taken two photography classes at the high school level, but I'm still inexperienced. I'll be using a Nikon D40x which I'm still familiarizing myself with. Basically, I'm really worried because senior pictures are very important and I don't feel equipped for the job. One thing I noticed when I got my senior pictures taken that made a very big difference between my photos and my friends' photos was that my photographer used reflectors for outdoor portraits. Since I don't have access to an indoor set-up, I know that most of the photos I take will have to be outdoors, but I don't have a reflector. Any advice on making one of my own, or types of lighting to look for so that it's not a problem? Any advice on makeshift equipment, posing, lighting, etc. would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure my friends have quality photos that don't look like some amateur took them (even though that may be the case!).
