This course focuses on how to light, shoot, and edit corporate portraits—both traditional headshots and environment portraits—for a single client or an entire office. Robert Vanelli goes through scouting locations and choosing the right environment for a client, building a portable studio, and using lighting and posing techniques that start with just one light. He also covers editing portraits in Lightroom, making adjustments that retain the subject's character while smoothing away minor flaws. Using these tips, you'll be able to produce professional portraits that help your clients convey a sense of trust, confidence, and personality.
