•Plan your portrait session in advance.  Talk with your subject about what you want them to wear, and the "look" you are trying to achieve. 

•Experiment with different moods, changing your lighting ratios, backgrounds, light diffusion (using large and/or small light source(s), with hard or soft shadows) and background colors.    

•During your session, shoot a second photo that shows each of your lighting setups.
