I recently attended a workshop on lighting where we worked on a number of techniques to bring out the pictures to their max. Commencing with a simple one light setup we began with the use of a beauty dish above the model and a reflector below. This provided us with catch-lights in our model’s eyes in two places (upper and lower eye). A sample is here with our Model Katlyn.
The Second setup was similar but we used two Soft Boxes in an horizontal layout. Here the catch-light appeared in two places again however the angle was horizontal this time.
Next we tried some shots with back-lighting. This was done with a strobe and a blue gel cover to give a blue colour to the image.
Here is a sample of an image created this way with our model Katlyn.
Be sure to check out the other shots of Katlyn on my Flickr Site.
