36. Bright and stylish

Following on from the previous chapters, Karl continues to demonstrate creative lighting setups for studio photography using basic equipment. For this section he adds an additional light, bringing his total to three lights.

Using basic modifiers and equipment, Karl explains his lighting setup and demonstrates the step-by-step process of testing and adjusting his lighting ratio until he reaches the bright and stylish result below.

Starting with his back light, he works his way forward, perfecting each of the three lights as he goes, explaining his thought process and creative decisions throughout the class.

In this photography class we cover the following:

  • Studio Lighting: How to set up multiple studio lights
  • Three light setup for creative portrait photography
  • Softbox lighting setup
  • Using reflectors for portrait photography
  • Using subtle side lighting for creative effect

NOTE: This course is available with English subtitles

  1. Hi Karl, in this video you mention using a grid for the background light. Can you tell how many degrees the grid is and what size reflector your using with it.

    Cheers.

  2. I have to thank you for helping solve a problem I was facing. @ around the 6:01 mark you were explaining the side light being colder than front light. I did notice this in my shots but didn’t understand why. Now I know. The front light shooting into the skin bouncing warm tones back as opposed to the side light skimming the skin and being daylight balanced. Makes sense!! I rewatch many of your sessions and gain more knowledge each time.
