Not bad, it was a little tricky and you have to do adjusting, but I was able to make a decent forground image.

3 advanced studio lighting techniques every portrait photographer should try

3 advanced studio lighting techniques every portrait photographer should try | une Maman photographie... | Scoop.it

 

 

If you want to give your portraits more of a professional look or simply expand your repertoire as a portrait photographer, you’ll want to start experimenting with studio lighting techniques.

 

Chances are you’ve dabbled with flash or tried a simple lighting set-up at home, but if you want to really start taking control of your lighting and drawing out the character of your subject, you’ll want to broaden your horizons a bit.

Below we’ve suggested three straightforward studio lighting techniques using two-head lighting set-ups you can use to fine tune your light.

 

We’ve also compiled these advanced studio lighting techniques as a photography cheat sheet, which you can either drag and drop to your desktop or click on directly to view in higher resolution.

 

No. 1 : Add a hair light to lift your subject

 

Most studio lighting set-ups only emphsasise one facet of your subject’s face. By adding an additional light to the rear of the set, you can start to create a more three-dimensional effect.

 

The hair light should be positioned carefully behind your sitter to one side, but not so it shines directly into the lens. Meter this light separately with all others switched off, so that it’s half a stop dimmer than your main light.

Use a snoot to create a small but direct patch of light that picks up the texture of the hair.

 

No. 2: The Tri-flector technique

 

A real innovation in lighting gadgets is the tri-flector. Three mini reflectors are designed into a single unit, which is placed on a low stand underneath your subject.

 

Each of the panels can move independently to remove shadows from the right, left and underneath, leaving a stark but glamorous result.

 

Add a single light slightly above the model’s eye level pointing down and you’ll achieve a flawless result every time. Add a hair light behind to emphasise the shape of your sitter.

 

No. 3: Light the background

 

Most backgrounds serve a secondary purpose and are rarely included in lighting techniques, yet this set-up can give real depth. Assemble your lighting as above, with a second light behind your model out of shot.

Place this low to the ground and fix a snoot or honeycomb to force the light in one direction.

 

Point the light at the background with the centre of the light exactly behind the centre of your subject’s face. Meter independently so it’s one stop over your main light reading.

"I have owned an iPad for quite some time now, and found it to be an excellent tool for both amateur photographers like myself and professionals alike. Sure, an iPad will never be able to replace a computer for serious photo editing (well, for me, anyway,) but I feel that it has definitely earned a place in the discerning photographers kit bag."

Une catastrophe ce nouveau système, au moment même où tout le monde migre vers Google, faire disparaître les services qui leur ont valu des adeptes et des propagateurs de la bonne parole... Cela donne de plus en plus envie de les quitter et de devenir autonome, pour tout...
