    Your examples of broad and short light are really good. I like how you are looking up in the short light example. It adds drama to the shot.

    Rembrandt light is usually when the model is looking forward.

    Try holding the phone a little further away and crop in later with the Lightroom app if needed. It may lessen the distortion.
