Setting up lights for business portraits.

Time-laps of me setting up studio lights for a location headshots shoot for a local business.

Thought it be fun to video myself as I was setting up my location studio lights in preparation for a portrait shoot for a local business here on the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich. Many people are very surprised when they come in for a sitting and see the light set-up, but to ensure a well lit and sharp portrait it is necessary to use the right light, and also importantly the right lens for a good headshot. Setting up and breaking down the studio lights can sometimes be the most time-consuming part of a job which a lot of people might not realise.
