  • reflectors are always a necessity, and they enhance the natural lighting outside and add to it if you are shooting in a studio.

    The beauty of photography is that you can make a photo happen anywhere you want. My advice is to have a really good camera with high shutter speed, pixels, and lens. ( I recommend Nikon)

  • When I was in your boat all I had was a camera. I really wanted to learn portriture though so the cheapest way for me to start was with garage clamp style lights, photo bulbs I got at the local camera shop and a bed sheet tacked to the Use what's around you and work your way up. You might find that indoor/studio portraits aren't your thing and that you enjoy doing outdoor portraits or landscapes more. Play with all aspects and see what you like best before you start dropping a lot of $$.
