Event description
Lighting for Headshots
The saying “It’s all about the light”, could not be truer for photography. If you have great light, there is a good chance of a great image. But what is great light, how to make the best of the available light, and what if you could have absolute control over the light?
Discussed will be Quality of Light, how to recognize it, and how to control and modify it. We’ll start with available light, how to control it with reflectors, and augment it with camera flash.
Then will be discussed how to take complete control of the lighting with studio grade lighting. Revisiting Quality of Light, discussing the size of the light, the direction of the light, and the color of the light, several multiple light setups will be demonstrated. Starting with one light, then adding a second, then third, to achieve just the look you want.
The beauty of using studio flash is once you find the look or looks you like, they are repeatable. Instead of worrying about lighting you can concentrate on posing and expressions. So next time a portrait opportunity comes along requiring studio lighting, instead of declining saying “I’m an available light photographer”, say great, lets schedule a date.
