Portrait Lighting Patterns

For this shoot I was experimenting with head shots and the different lighting patters on the face. These portraits are so cool because you get to see how just a different position of a light can make people look different. Lighting is such a powerful thing, it’s surprising to see how one lighting pattern can look awesome on one person, then on another person it can make someone look funny. It doesn’t only apply to portraits either. If you look at landscapes or animals or anything you are taking a picture of, the lighting sets the mood. Depending on what the light is, it will make or break a picture. But luckily, with these head shots, it was easy to manipulate the light and make it look just the way I want it. It also helps that my models are so great and made everything easy.
