Back Lighting

short lighting

Butterfly lighting 

Edge  Lighting 

Today class, we work with 4 different lighting. Butterfly, edge, short, and back lighting. For the first photo I did a low angle shot and the contrast made a light pop more. The 2nd photo, the model was looking up. I capture that moment to get a rim lighting . You could see the lighting on the model’s forehead and the glare on her glasses. The 3rd photo, the model was place in the middle of the shot and use a white a background with bright lighting. To get this look I lower the aperture. The last photo, the model back was turnt and place the lighting towards her back and some lighting on the front.

    As mentioned in class, your “short” lighting is in fact short, but more important we were looking for 3 point lighting with hair light. And with the first shot, be careful of exposure, this one is probably a stop and a half to 2 stops under exposed.
