How to Shoot With Stu­dio Lights

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

WHEN shoot­ing with stu­dio flash lights, you’ll be in full con­trol of your light­ing. Here’s how they work with your ex­po­sure: “The shut­ter speed con­trols how bright the back­drop is and the aper­ture de­ter­mines how bright the sub­ject is. Keep ISO con­sis­tent and low at around 100-200. Then you sim­ply set the power of your flash heads in­di­vid­u­ally to light your sub­ject how you want.

I use a light me­ter,” says Emma, “but a good start­ing ex­po­sure is 1/125 sec, f/8, ISO100, with your lights on around 1/2 power, then tweak each light’s power as nec­es­sary.”
