Learn to shoot fantastic portraits of a mature client in the studio. Mark demonstrates how to light, pose and shoot a variety of simple portraits styles in this studio session with real client Sandra.

In this second part of the session Sandra has requested a variety of different looks, ranging from casual and relaxed to a few sporty image to finish. Mark varies the lighting quite dramatically for this part, keeping mainly to harder light sources, reflectors and grids, to bring a more fashion feel to the images. Mark demonstrates that just because a client might be a little older you shouldn’t be afraid of mixing up the lighting and posing, as long as it suits the client, the style of image and they are comfortable with the posing.
