One-Light Portrait AdviceDPMag Published in Blog
Just yesterday I was making simple studio portraits with a couple of lights and I was thinking about how great photographs require great light, but great light doesn’t mean lots of lights. Case in point: photographer Matthew Jordan Smith speaks in this Profoto-sponsored how-to video about creating a gorgeous one-light portrait of model Tyra Banks. More than your average short video, this clip has Mr. Smith diagram the shoot and offer insights not only for working with one light but for positioning lights for the ideal effect. He also offers advice for working with models when you're using a powerful source like a ring light. It's a great shot, and a great video—both done simply and both done quite well.
