Multiple Lights Character Portrait

6 Lights Required

In this course we will be using light with precision and build up our images to five and six lights. Every light has a specific job and we will build our set, one light at a time. If you are looking to add atmosphere and create character portraits whilst taking real control of your lighting, then this course is for you.

Before we begin

You can use any brand of equipment to create these shots. I have a detailed equipment section in every course so that you can look up the equivalents to what I am using with the brands you shoot with. Every shot that you see in the workflow is straight off camera. There is no smoke and mirrors here so when the test shots come up on screen, they are genuine shots, dust spots, not straight and all the other small mistakes I may make, I show you. Unless the shot has 'final image' written next to it, everything you see is straight off camera. The photos at the bottom on this page are the final retouched shots and I'll show you how I got there in the retouching section and provide you with the free actions you need to complete the same techniques.
