In this live photography workshop Karl demonstrates two more creative portrait lighting techniques (if you missed part one, you can watch it here)
In this show Karl focuses on portrait lighting, demonstrating two creative setups. The first, a high key portrait with strong contrast, demonstrates how to use backlighting for creative effect while also controlling flare and highlights. You’ll also see how to use reflectors and other techniques to further control your light.
The second portrait, which is more of a classic beauty lighting style, uses just two softboxes to create a lovely, soft light. Karl demonstrates how to control edge lighting, apply the inverse square law to control the light on your background and change the hardness or softness of the light.
In this live portrait photography workshop we cover the following:
- Portrait lighting techniques
- Two light portrait lighting setup
- How to use backlighting for creative effect
- How to create a white background
- How to control flare
- The inverse square law
