    formed Thanks for your input! The bts video shows just a bunch of bearded people playing advertising agency or a gif of the steps..

    This was not a beginner question, I am able to do proper postpro but I am no photographer. But sadly I have to do a private shooting with photographer I don't know and I don't think much of him so I want to do it myself.

    The image will be a color blob/gradient in the background, no other objects and a person's head and parts of the chest pictured, the product is wool hats.

    So I'd put two rectangle softboxes left and right, one soft octabox in the front and no highlights or ringflashes or something like that. Maybe another box from the top for the hat.

    Models will get a professional makeup job done with airbrush by me. Wish me luck :D

    Camerawise I'd go for a 50mm fixed lens, I hope he has that there..

    I was hoping for advice to do exactly the beauty skin tones and hair - I'm more used to industrial machines and automotive.. My skin tones are more dark and dirty and overly dramatic.

    Should I shoot another pic with ringflash just for the hair?
