A three light portrait is done by a person facing a 3/4 view where the photo captures the three techniques. This will allow the broad, rembrandt and short lighting to take place. Broad Lighting is basically when part of the face thats closest to the camera illuminates. Short lighting is opposite of broad lighting where part of the face thats further illuminates. Rembrandt lighting is the key light which is when the light is in front .
This photo is successful to me because the use of background lighting is great. Also the “triangle” is captured in this photo as well. The use of space is fabulous almost seems as if its a class photo. Overall this picture taken by my group was very successful.
