Backlighting is an ideal way to shape a subject and, if used correctly, can result in some stunning images. For this portrait photography class Karl is again joined by Urs Recher for this single light setup demonstration and together they demonstrate how to create beautiful soft rim lighting using back lighting with a slight twist.
The pair use 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 back lighting for creative effect
- How to avoid flare
- How to modify rim light
- Using reflectors and flags
- How to control shadows
Note: This course is available with English subtitles.
