Using just two lights for this business portrait lighting class, Karl demonstrates how to create broad, soft lighting that’s very flattering, particularly for older subjects.
In this information-packed class, you’ll learn how to control the exposure on both white backgrounds and dark backgrounds to easily meet any client’s needs. The setups demonstrated throughout the class are also ideal for those working in small studios or offices.
This simple lighting setup can be used for close-up head and shoulder shots or for three-quarter length portraits and Karl shows you how to easily use the same two modifiers coupled with a simple reflector as a fill light to control shadows for these types of images.
For those with more equipment, Karl demonstrates how to build on the original setup by adding a graduated background glow — a technique that can help separate the subject from the background and add a professional touch to any business portrait.
