Half the fun of studio lighting is that you get such granular control over the lighting that you can bring ideas to fruition that simply would not be possible with just natural light. Such is the case with this video, which will show you how to create these eye-catching shots using slit lighting.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this great video will show you his lighting setup for creating dramatic portraits using slit lighting. It is definitely a less traditional look, but I think this sort of experimentation is at the heart of finding one's personal style as a photographer and is something that every photographer should take the time to do. Ortiz is using a MagMod kit for this setup. If you are not familiar with them, MagMod makes a range of modifiers that are particularly popular with the wedding photographer crowd for their ease of use and efficiency.
By the way, if you want to see someone else getting highly creative with MagMod modifiers, be sure to check out the work of our very own Jason Vinson; he is one of my favorite photographers to go to when I need a bit of creative inspiration.
