I am new to the forum and new to this type of photography. I am not sure if I will ever get the chance to do it, but the skill involved in posing, lighting and editing these photographs is awe inspiring.

I have little equipment, but a desire to learn and experiment.

Below is a picture of an old friend I took in her office on the spur of the moment. Natural light from a south facing window and I used her desk lamp as a hair light.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

Nice lighting, hair and eyes. Crappy expression. Take another one. Dont' show her this one. She is self conscious. Show her the next one, that should be great!

The one skill you didn't list was editing.

You need to be able to look at a pic like that and see that her expression is totally strange and she will not like it.

she wont care about the soft natural light, how you positioned the desk light as a hair light, how you cropped the image...she'll skip right over all that and see herself and say...Yeech, what was I doing with my mouth?

As a photographer, you need to be able to see this and dump the bad expressions before anyone else sees them.

Everyone takes bad shots. Good editors never let anyone else see them.
