P.4 Three-Point Studio Portrait Lighting
Make 3 portraits with each of the following set ups. Experiment with quality, direction, and intensity of light. Also explore various poses and other ways to evoke emotion or drama!
Camera settings: 1/200 shutter speed, low f-stop number, lowest ISO possible- but can be increased to 400. (If you need more exposure, increase intensity of the lights.)
- Back/hair Light Only
- Key Light Only
- Key + Fill
- Key + Fill + Back Light
Edit your best 3 for each set up and post to your blog, titled “3-Point Portrait Light Set Up”.
I recommend making the portraits black and white to begin editing, then you can return saturation or keep them that way!
