Part of making a refined image in the studio is lighting your subject to preserve details in their hair or operate them from the background. In today’s video, I will teach you everything you need to know about hair lights. Including which modifiers to use, where and how to mount them plus how bright your lights should be.
In today’s lighting tutorial, I’m going to breakdown four looks that I created with our model Justin.
For the last few years, often times, I have used a parabolic style soft box as a main light. Last year I mentioned in a video that I liked using it because its quite directional and I feel like I can use this property to better control light. Some people disagreed with me, so I made this video to examine if it really is more directional than standard soft boxes.
Today we’re going to talk about depth-of-field, not scientifically speaking, but practically speaking.
What’s my motivation? is a refrain that we often hear from actors, but that phrase can mean a lot to photographers, too. Especially when I am trying to simulate natural light.
