CLOTHING While seniors may think a lot about clothing, no photography studio should ever make the assumption that all high school seniors know what to wear for their portrait session. It is up to the studio to educate the client about what would work best in their portraits. Prior to every session, we mail out a flyer to help seniors with clothing, makeup, hair, etc. This idea stems from promotional pieces created by both Ellie Vayo and Steve Ahrens. Tips for Looking Great in Your Senior Portraits As the summer nears, high school juniors will begin to think about their senior portraits.

Corrections can be made in one of two ways: by constantly setting a new custom white balance in the studio or utilizing Photoshop post-capture to neutralize the color casts. Both options are very time consuming. Fortunately, the Profoto units are equipped with a silent fan that works to keep the bulbs cool for problem-free, continuous use. Profoto also offers a complete line of light modifiers and reflectors for any photographic situation.
