When it comes to portrait photography, most professionals employ a range of lighting equipment to dial in the exact images they are looking for no matter where they are or when they are shooting. That being said, you will be amazed what you can accomplish with natural light and the knowledge of how to shape it to your needs. This great video tutorial will show you how to create professional portraits in a garage using just natural light and a few modifiers.
Coming to you from our good friend, Pye Jirsa, with Adorama TV, this excellent video tutorial will show you how to create professional portraits in your garage. One particularly important thing to notice is the impact that adding negative fill has on the final image.

Check out the video above for the full rundown from Jirsa.
