33. Moody two light control

Karl is again joined by broncolor’s Urs Recher for this precise photography lighting demonstration as together they show what’s possible using just two lights.

For this photography class Urs guides us through one of his lighting setups, where, unusually, he makes use of hard light to achieve this stunning beauty image. Throughout this demonstration he also reiterates the importance of precision and control.

In this photography class we cover the following:

  • Studio Lighting: How to set up multiple studio lights
  • Two light setup for beauty photography
  • How to create hard light using a softbox
  • Using reflectors and fill light in photography

For more information on how to to create hard or soft light using a softbox, watch Chapter 21 of the Portrait section.

NOTE: This course is available with English subtitles


  1. I did like the birds eye view of the lighting set up. It really amps up the total quality of the production. Really enjoyed this episode. Thanks

  2. using same set ups and poses in these videos to shoot models for my photography page would this have copy rights issue

  3. Karl and Urs are the best photographers duo. I love the (unusual) way that Urs shapes the light and the knowledge and charisma of Karl. This series is -by far- my best investment in photography ever.

  4. Awesome detailed info that explains how and why the light works. Really loving these videos. The Karl and Urs videos are always interesting from both perspectives .

    1. Hi MizUniverse, his name is Urs Recher, he’s Swiss and a very knowledgable photographer and consultant from broncolor. I asked him to come in and demonstrate some of his unique lighting setups.
