Beauty images are a wonderful chance for you to find your personal style through your choices of lighting, posing, and editing. This excellent video tutorial will show you how a photographer used two lights and gels to create a unique beauty image.
Coming to you from Lindsay Adler Photography, this great video tutorial will take you behind the scenes of how she lit and shot the beauty image you see in the video. For the shot, Adler used a Canon 5D Mark IV in tandem with a Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM lens. I was fascinated by this particular choice, as the 180mm Macro is a fairly rare lens, with photographers normally reaching for the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. Normally, it is used by macro photographers who want a bit more working distance so as to not disturb their subjects. Nonetheless, in the context of beauty image, the 180mm Macro offers the same 1:1 magnification of its 100mm cousin while offering the telephoto compression afforded by a lens with a longer focal length. Altogether, it is a fascinating process that led to the final image; check out the video above to see how Adler made it all happen.
