Learning Log #8 – Portrait Lighting 2

In today’s lesson, we continued to learn more about the different types of lightings. We learned about Key lighting, Fill lighting, and Back lighting. But our main focus today was butterfly/ clamshell lighting, edge lighting, 3 point with hair lighting and 3 point with background lighting. I enjoyed all of the different types of lighting we learned today, but my two favorites were butterfly/clamshell and edge lighting – butterfly was very bright and vibrant, whereas, edge lighting gave you more of a mysterious look to it. It took me a while to understand the types of lightings and i’m still learning but I was able to learn some things about the different types of lighting and see how it plays out.
