Tip #2: All about time  Timing is a main factor when it comes to a photoshoot because this can determine difficulty. Natural lighting changes constantly so if you are wanting to do an outdoor shoot with the best lighting, the best time is a couple hours before sunset or sunrise, also known as the “golden hour”.

Tip #3: Keep an eye on detail  Detail in photography is very important. Poor quality photos are a no go when taking pictures so make sure the lens is focused and settings of the camera are where they need to be. If photos are coming out blurry make sure that you are keeping a steady hand on the camera.
