This week we received a very special and exciting delivery to add to the studio. This amazing flash lighting set up is from Broncolor. I have listed the break down of the set up at the end of this post.
Knowing how to light your subject is crucial in creating professional imagery.
Weather you are using artificial light or natural light there are a few different lighting styles that are defined by how light and shadow fall across the face to create a desired look and mood.
When working with babies use a soft filtered light. For natural light sheer curtains are great, or for artificial light use soft boxes. To reduce the contrast in the light, either increase the size of the light source or move the light source away from your subject.
Lastly, when photographing a portrait there is by no means an exact science. There are many factors that will affect the final result. For example; the client’s facial features, the exact position of the head, the position of the camera, and the position of the lights.
