Portrait Basics

Potraite of Amera-Rime Lulu

Traditional 3 light portraits is one of the oldest tricks in photography to create the best results.

The main 3 elements is 3 light portraits are:

1. The key light

2. The Fill light

3.  The Back light

The first light is a key light. Usually this is the strongest light and this light sets the lighting of the scene.

The second light is called a fill light, this light helps fill the shadows that the main light casts.

The last light is called a back light because it comes from the back, and is used to create a contour and separation

What i love about my Photo the most is the lighting direction and how the light is completing my skin ton. I also love my expression i feel this photograph of myself expresses who I’m as a person.
