I get emails almost weekly, asking me about certain light setups. So I decided to start doing a weekly light series on YouTube. I thought, "what's the best light setup to start it with then with one of my favorite lighting set-ups?" Hard Light! I will be rolling out a new lighting setup once a week. They will range from basic to a bit more advanced. I am very excited and happy to do this and teach some of my fellow photographers.
Me and my fabulous styling team, and model Sofie, got into my studio and filmed the first video to this series over the weekend. I find that this setup is on the basic/easy side and will be great for anyone with one light to try out for themselves. For this shoot, I use only one light and show you how they are placed and my settings, etc. The cool thing about this setup, is you do not need to have a million lights to do this look and the results are fabulous. Give it a go, if you have not already! If you have tried this look, what do you think of it? Is it a favorite of yours as well?
Here are some of the images.
