Learn how to create a classic beauty shot.
Unlike portrait photography, which typically requires soft lighting, classic beauty/makeup images need hard light. In this class, you’ll discover three important considerations for making these shots work, before getting to grips with two different lighting setups.
For the first setup, you’ll use a couple of lights as Karl walks you through the necessary modifiers and accessories. You’ll also learn how to use fill light to control shadow density. In the second setup, you’ll need nothing more than a single bare bulb as you learn how to create striking hard shadows across the model’s face.
