This exercise allows students to learn how to direct a portrait session while refining technical and compositional aspects of their images using a three-light setup.
Instructions: Create a portrait (self or of another person) using a three-light setup. You must utilize a key light, fill light, and one additional light source.
Tips for setting up your studio lighting for portraits:
- Your subject should be as far away from the background as possible.
- If the subject wears eyeglasses, position your light to avoid glare.
- Don’t forget to bracket!
