Portrait Lighting - Online

The human face is an infinitely fascinating subject. How you choose to light a face is a big part of making a portrait. We’ll cover the history of portrait photography and examine the different techniques used by fine art, editorial and commercial photographers. We’ll look at available light inside and outside, hot lights and LEDs, and strobe lighting styles and techniques. We’ll explore hard light and soft light, the direction of light and the color of light and how we can use all this to create a portrait.
