LA: Studio Lighting 6

“Take some portrait shots and pay specific attention to the lighting you use. I would like to see a shot with soft lighting and one with more dramatic, harder lighting.”

My lighting sources that I use for when I’m streaming are fixed to my desk and because I was pressed for time for this learning activity I decided to do it using my webcam as I figured how to light is the exercise, not how we take the photo.

Don’t mind my dirty hair and lack of make-up. Here you can see soft light where there are barely any shadows on my face and those are very soft. The other photos (left and top 3) are with hard lighting, face turned in different directions for different effects. I only had one light source on those, and 3 on the one with soft light. One on the right, one on the left and also ceiling light plus the faint light from window behind.
