HOW TO WORK A PHOTOGRAPHER IN A SMALL TOWN

Overhead
When living in small cities, the overhead is usually lower. Maybe our work can also be priced cheaper?

It’s all about the look – the model’s eyes in the photo look a little boring, not like in reality. Sounds familiar? What is missing? No, only the glare in the eyes disappeared.

How bright flashes in the eyes change a photo
