What is Studio Photography
Studio photography occurs in a controlled environment where nearly all elements of the photo shoot can be influenced, modified or changed in a manner that produces a desired result. Typically, when conducting a studio portraiture session, a large amount of photography equipment is needed. This equipment is what is required to produce the controlled results of a great studio photography image. This extensive amount of equipment usually includes digital cameras, numerous lens, camera tripods, basic or more advanced studio lighting systems, strobe or dome lights, hot lamps, countless lighting stands, light umbrellas, flash meters, large backdrops of seamless paper or fabric, and an assistant or two. At the end of the day, these extraordinary efforts help to produce memorable images that last a lifetime.
