01 PICK A SIDE

Set up your light­ing to the side of your sub­ject. Here we’re us­ing a beauty dish with a hon­ey­comb, but you can use other mod­i­fiers like a soft­box or strip box.

03 MOVE THE LIGHT

Move your light to the other side of your sub­ject, in ex­actly the same po­si­tion as it was on the pre­vi­ous side. Your sub­ject should re­main in the same place.

02 BROAD LIGHT­ING

An­gle your sub­ject’s shoul­ders to the light, with their head turned away. Don’t let the far side of their face fall fully into shadow, un­less you want split light­ing.

04 SHORT LIGHT­ING

If your sub­ject didn’t move, they should be short lit! If you can’t move your light, keep ev­ery­thing in the same place and turn the sub­ject’s head to the light.
