As part of CreativeLive's Portrait Bootcamp the mad talent and knowledge of New York City-based portrait/fashion photographer Lindsay Adler are put to use as she breaks down the practical definitions of light. Lindsay points out that once you can describe light by these 3 basic aspects (intensity, direction and quality) then you can start to understanding how much light to use, where it needs to be placed and what kind of modifiers are needed to achieve certain looks. If you are getting paid to take photos and don't already know this, shame on you. If you are just starting out then you're in luck and in the right place.
Studio Lighting can be tricky and in this clip from Portrait Bootcamp, Lindsay Adler shows images of various lighting setups and explains how you can create each look and how to avoid common mistakes. -CreativeLive
