Named af­ter the great pain­ter who used it of­ten with his por­traits, ‘Rem­brandt light­ing’ is a method for il­lu­mi­nat­ing a face with direc­tional light. Po­si­tion a light source above and slightly to one side of the face and, when you’re at the right an­gle, the shadow of the nose cre­ates an at­trac­tive tri­an­gle of light. If you want to get tech­ni­cal about it, the tri­an­gu­lar line should go to­wards the cor­ner of the mouth and be no longer than the nose.
