Learning About studio Lighting

Lighting studio is what separates many professional portrait photographers from amateurs. It's not to say that you can't reach beautiful shots with natural light only – of course, this is possible. But for formal or glamorous portraits, flexibility is capable of controlling light in total it will produce a few strong shots.

The basic studio lighting kit is quite flexible for various shots, consisting of two lights, with umbrellas and/or softboxes. If you take a professional softbox lighting kit, preferably using a studio straya, which acts as a version of your flash on your normal camera.

This setting can be used in many configurations – general settings are using one lamp on one side of the subject and other lights on the opposite side on half the power of the first light. This setting will provide opportunities with some shadows to emphasize features, but the shadow won't be very dark – good if you try to show the full face or subject body.

Another option is to use only one lamp on one side of the subject, and the second lights to become background lights or hair lights. Background lights are useful for making the subject stand out from the background but must have much lower power than the main light in many cases. 

The hair light is usually placed behind or on the boom, pointing to the back of your subject's head. It creates the edge of light around the edge of the hair and clothing, which is a good effect in glamorous type photography.
