Hi all, Im building up a nice little portfolio now of before and after pics of extensions.

But I was wondering if any of you could give me any tips? Ive seen other peoples pics and they look really bright and shiny and for some reason mine always look a bit 'flat'.

Im using my phone, Samsung galaxy 6 which has a good camera but Im just not happy with how my pics look.

Also any tips on how to comb the hair etc, basically any tips at all would be really helpful, Ill try and upload a few of mine so you can see what i mean. Thanks
Good lighting is key! And maybe turn your flash on?
My photos were like that but then I bought a bright lamp off eBay that i put near where I'm fitting the client and the pictures come out a lot better then :) is abit difficult if your doing it at the clients house though, if your doing it at a clients house I'd just use the flash on camera x
Before i got the lamp and after so made a difference :)
