Portrait Lighting for Photography and Video!

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!)

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your
    own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure
    things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do
    you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

      Not too difficult. Consistency is the key. . A WordPress based blog is pretty solid. I would recommend using a premium theme, such as from studiopress.com. If you need a web designer to help you put it all together, I can give you a referral. Another solid option would be to use squrespace.com.

      Then you just need a good topic and lots of content!
