We no longer need to use strobes all of the time, and constant lighting gives us the ability to better read the lighting on the face. James starts off with an introduction into lighting theory, then takes you through the step-by-step process of setting up various types of constant lighting sources, and ways to create different effects with some of the lights that are available today. Constant lighting sources make it fun and easy to experiment, and you’ll leave the class feeling inspired to try some of the techniques in your own photography..
Join James in studio as he provides an overview of what this class is about.
Lighting Theory [12:47]
Using a set of daylight balanced fluorescent lights James provides some fundamental lessons in lighting your subject.
Distance From the Subject [09:33]
One of the most important decisions you make with lighting is how far away from the subject you place the light.
Adding a Reflector [03:29]
Reflectors are a versatile lighting tool that come in a variety of sizes and colors.
Hair Light [13:35]
A hair light adds shine to the hair and helps to separate the subject from the background.
Large Silver Umbrella [08:33]
The silver umbrella is better for fashion or clothing when you need a lot of brilliance from your light source.
Lighting Your Background Separately from your Subject [07:07]
Lighting a subject wearing white in front of a white background can be a real challenge.
Using a Spotlight [04:43]
For more impact you can use a spotlight.
Spotlights can be used with grids, barn doors, or alone.
Fresnel Lens [03:08]
A Fresnel lens on a light is the same type of lens found on a lighthouse, which allows you to focus and concentrate your light and create some cool effects.
More Spotlight Effects [02:17]
Here’s another way to use the spotlight as the main light with hair lights for separation from the background.
Clamping a Softbox [04:05]
Creating a V shape out of a softbox using clamps reduces the spread of the light to create darker shadows under the nose.
Edge Lighting [07:47]
