Boudoir Part 14 : Dramatic Lighting
This stunning image of our model Danila, was taken using very simple techniques. A black backdrop stretched from floor to ceiling, Two strobes left and right provide the wash over Danila. We converted this to Black and White for added effect. Kathleen is “The Mistress of Posing” and just has a way to bring the best out of all of our models! One Professional Model once asked if KK would help with some Pro Sessions – wow.
Studio Lighting does not need to be expensive or complicated. The best source of light is the Sun! For soft light, take your subject to a window. Have her/him turn the nose towards the light and watch as the sunlight goes from Dramatic to Rembrandt. These shots are the easiest and perhaps the most complimentary since they convey a subtle mood. The most important thing is to get your DSLR out of “Portrait” or “Auto” mode and learn a bit about Exposure, Light and just have Fun! You will be amazed with your results!
