Tips on how to get studio quality photos anywhere

In order to accomplish this you need to have the right equipment. This means a DSLR camera and some speedlights. The next task is to figure out camera settings. Here are basic good settings:

  1. ISO 100
  2. Shutter speed 1/60 – 1/200 (Most speedlights only work with these speeds)
  3. f/8 – f/20

Then set up your speedlights, and be sure to attach a snoot so you can direct the light onto your subject. It is a good idea to set up a triangle of light between the flash, the camera, and the subject.
