Using rim lighting as a backlight is an ideal way to shape a subject and, if used correctly, can result in some stunning images.
For this rim light portrait photography tutorial Karl is joined by Urs Recher for a single light setup demonstration. Together, they demonstrate how to create beautiful soft rim lighting using backlighting with a special twist.
Learn a surprisingly simple but clever technique to achieve what looks like a four-light setup but is, in actual fact, just a single, modified light.
In this photography class we cover the following:
- Portrait photography using a single light
- How to use backlighting for creative effect
- How to avoid flare
- How to modify rim light
- Using reflectors and flags
- How to control shadows
