Lights Make The Difference

To separate your subject from the background use light setup, like a softbox diffuser, to help soften the light and create more flattering shadows.

Have you ever thought “my phone can do a better job“? Well if your photographer does not use lights then your phone may do a better job. That’s because phones have powerful software that adjust the lighting.

A true professional uses their experience to adjust the lighting.

I set my camera for the background lighting and my powerful strobes to light you up. That’s what makes you pop! Also phones are not able to replicate this setup.  You should be able to see the difference in my portfolio.

When you hire a photographer make sure they have the right experience for powerful strobe lights.
