Flash- Use warming gels on your flash and other artificial lighting sources to accentuate your subjects skin tones. Moreover, the use of flash fills can help create contrast between your foreground and background and eliminate shadows.
Natural Lighting- The best lighting conditions in any given day are usually found right before sunrises and just after sunsets, so place your subject in a location where you can take advantage of this kind of lighting. Natural lighting is very important in adding color to both the foreground and backdrop in your images. So when you do come across spectacular lighting, follow it, and make it work.
Tip #7- Bring movement into your images and add a sense of life. To do so use a longer than normal exposure and have your subject keep still as others move around him. This also demonstrates to those viewing your shot that the person is the main focus of the image.
Tip #8- Incorporate objects other than just the subject into your photo. Potentially it can result in interesting reactions and make your photograph stand out.
