Top tip Cre­ate an even light­ing setup

Practical Photography (UK) - - The Human Body -

Your over­all frame will be busy with many dif­fer­ent el­e­ments, so you don’t want to con­fuse your au­di­ence’s eye by in­clud­ing dra­matic light­ing. Heavy shad­ows are also likely to shift slightly as your model moves around be­tween each shot. In­stead use evenly-dif­fused light to en­sure min­i­mal shad­ows. This will also mean that your pho­tos will blend into each other seam­lessly, rather than jar­ring in the grid. To cre­ate an evenly-lit high-key setup, use two lights with soft­box dif­fusers at­tached. Place them in front of your model, both pointed in­wards to­wards the face. This will cre­ate a flat and even light that will work per­fectly for your por­trait grid.
