Taking Portraits in a Studio Lighting Set-Up

Hi,

We had a very interesting session in the Photography Club last month. We explored portrait lighting using three different backgrounds and lighting kits. I gave a brief presentation of the various kinds of portrait lighting. If you haven’t seen it yet, click Studio lighting February 2016 to access the pdf file from the presentation.

We then broke into groups and each group was given the opportunity to take portraits against a white, black or mottled blue background with a mixture of light sources. Below you will find a variety of shots taken by all of our groups. Please take a couple of minutes to look through them and see the difference the background, lighting and composition makes.
