Wk 6 - Three point lighting

This week we got into the studio.  Terribly exciting!!!  Caryline took us through the three point lighting -

  1. Key light this is the main and strongest light.  Used on the subject
  2. Fill light this light fills the shadows which are created by the key light.  Two stops less than the key light.
  3. Back light aims to separate the subject from the background.  Slightly brighter than the key light, the back light provides definition and subtle highlights around the subject.

f/8.0, 1/80, ISO 100
Another thing to remember is to keep the ISO at 100 and that the shutter speed will not exceed 250

f/4.5, 1/80, ISO 100
 Here Bruce is shot under three point lighting
f/5.6, 1/80, ISO 100
Here only the fill light and back light are on.  Without the key light a shadow is cast on the left side of Jayde's face and shoulder
f/8, 1/80, ISO 100
In this photo you can see the rim lighting on Cecilia's hair

Below are photos from a photoshoot Cecilia and I did with my niece Paris
