I'm always looking for photographers who use simple home setups to showcase their techniques to our students, and I found a great video from Lorenzo Pickett, whose amazing model Eliza Lugo helped to create some wonderful fashion portraits in color and black and white. In our featured video, Lorenzo walks you through his complete setup and discusses lighting, make-up, and his camera lens and settings. The end results have gathered good attention, too - congratulations, Lorenzo! Visit his website for more information.
