Utilizing Back Light for Two Stylized Portraits

Our friends over at PHLEARN just released another tutorial, the goal of which was to create two completely different looks using the same model in a short amount of time. In this behind the scenes video you will learn how to set up lighting for a full length portrait as well as a headshot. They focused on creating drama for both shots using backlighting. Backlighting your subject helps to define their shape, but still leaves a lot of detail in shadow.

You can read more information about the shoot at PHLEARN, which also includes lighting diagrams (always super helpful). If you want to really get a lot more detail, you should consider their Pro Tutorials.
