Tips and tricks for perfect studio photos

First How do I prepare for the photo shoot?
Think about your appearance even before the photo shoot. Which clothing suits me and the respective position? What about the hairstyle, beard, make-up, glasses? Ask yourself these questions in advance. Make your way to the shoot in good time, avoid sweat, stress and too little sleep. A picture is worth a thousand words.


2. How should I dress?
Avoid excessive or neglected clothing. Choose your clothes to suit the job you are applying for. Pay attention to the color choice. Subtle, shrill or dark clothing looks different. Let experts advise you on this. Make sure you have spare clothes on hot days. Better safe than sorry.


3. What do I have to consider with regard to make-up, hairstyle and beard?
It is your decision how you want to present yourself, but it has to be cared for! Show your best side. Do a check in front of the mirror or talk to someone you trust. Think about your beard, make-up, jewelry and your cleavage. We can also touch away any impurities or pimples.

A photo studio is a room for taking photographs or films. The size and equipment of a photo studio depends on the motifs and the aim of the photographer. Historically, these were initially rooms with very large windows for the use of daylight, so-called  Daylight studios , also called glass houses. Today, however, artificial lighting is primarily used. A wide range of lighting devices is possible for this purpose. Entry-level equipment mostly uses permanent light from halogen burners, better equipment uses high-frequency fluorescent lamps or HMI light. Continuous light is also for use with digital  Scanbacks  and simultaneous use of film and video. For photography, however, in the absolute majority of cases there is one  Studio flash system  with proportional  Modeling light  the means of choice. It is irrelevant whether the photos are analog or digital. The purpose of a photo studio is to create photographs as efficiently as possible with precisely controlled lighting.
