Portrait Lighting for Photography and Video! from Jay P. Morgan on Vimeo.

 

There are several lighting positions that photographers have developed over the years. People like George Hurrell, who used tungsten to shoot stars, used these lighting positions. Learn to identify what a butterfly or Rembrandt light is. Knowing these positions, and where the light placed to create them, will help you see how photographers light their images. These are departure points from which you will create your own look and direction. Its hard to depart from someplace you have never been there. This will teach you the basics and give you a good foundation to build on.
This video is not as slick as some of the others we have done but it has great basic instructions on portrait lighting. (Don’t miss the ending its the most exciting part!)

Portrait Evening

Portrait Evening

wallyThis was an introduction to studio lighting and was led by Ian Waterman.

Ian successfully demonstrated that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get into studio lighting.  Various lighting set ups were used ranging from a one light arrangement, through to using reflectors and then adding additional lights into the mix.

After the break members had the opportunity to test out two lighting set ups assisted by our fabulous models Wally & Matt.
