Classes: Studio Portraiture

Our studio sessions on portraiture have been very helpful for my assignment as they’ve given me a real chance to think about how I want to light my own shots and practice with how to do things like checking the lighting ratios (between lit and shadowed areas on the face).

In the studio session pictured above, we’re looking at lighting ratios and using the two diffused lights on the sides to try to create a low ratio for a more flattering and less harsh effect.  The modelling lights were REALLY bright though, and the subjects had to keep their eyes closed while we were setting things up between shots.  We were also using wireless studio flash in this session, and it was even brighter!
