- Choose your lighting, including whether you’re shooting inside or outside
- Prep your equipment – make sure your camera is charged, grab your tripod (especially if your shooting indoors or in low light), grab the right lens(es)
- Get to it! – experiment with varying DOF and POV (depth of field, point of view) until you get the look you want.

Fingers crossed, I’ll be sharing an editing video of the photographs taken during this shoot next week (I’m not very good at this youtube/video thing).
