Live Beauty Lighting Techniques Photography Show

LIVE online Beauty Lighting Techniques workshop


Beauty Lighting Techniques

with Karl Taylor

Wed 20th Dec 2017 18:00GMT / 13:00EST

Working with a model, Karl will undertake a live beauty shoot with tips on preparation and lighting to reveal a superb final image. With tips also from our professional make up artist and an insight on lighting solutions that complement post production this will be a packed live show. Beauty lighting will often utilise a harder lighting formula than traditional portraiture and as such careful consideration needs to be given to the direction of light to minimize texture and imperfections.

The clarity of hard lighting adds a real punch and dynamic quality for beauty shots but post-production work becomes a necessity. Karl will demonstrate the considerations of lighting and poses to ensure that the post-production is both manageable and successful.

A significant part of the process is the makeup work and we will have a professional make-up artist on hand to apply the finishing touches and explain the requirements of makeup for this type of photography. Time allowing we may undertake a section of the skin retouching as part of this show, otherwise this will be concluded in January’s live beauty retouching episode.

Choice of lens, depth of field and backgrounds are also a key consideration as unlike portraiture these type of beauty shots are generally captured at f16. Join Karl, the model and the makeup artist for this informative live session and ask questions as we work along with our interactive Q&A.

If you are not able to join us live then you can email any questions in advance or after the show and watch it on replay.
