Light Setup For Portrait Photography Tutorial Beauty 3 Point Lighting – PUNCHINGPICTURES photoshoot

In this light setup for portrait photography tutorial video, I will show you what camera settings and light setup I used for my portrait photoshoot with Marly, aka PUNCHINGPICTURES. Learn some tips and tricks for beginners on lighting for portrait photography, and shooting with a model in a studio.

I love working with my Lastolite triflector. Out of all my reflectors, I often go for my triflector when it comes to beauty and fashion portraits taken in a studio (and even outside, I often use the Lastolite reflectors!). The triflector creates beautiful catchlights in the eyes, and takes away shadows in the face (when your light set-up is good); definitely something we want in a portrait photoshoot, especially a fashion one.

In this light setup for portrait photography I used 2 different lighting techniques. The first set-up, as explained in this light setup tutorial video, was 3 continuous lights; two from the side, and one from above. In the last light setup I added a blue led light to create an interesting light effect. Out of all lighting techniques, the three-way light set-up is definitely one of my favourites in portrait photography.

* * * NOTE: I know I speak a little slow and soft in this video, sorry! I recorded it while losing my voice, at 2 in the morning, a few hours before I wanted to upload it (I have a bunch of more videos coming so I really wanted to post this ASAP). I’ll speed it up next time :)! Thanks for mentioning it on other media though! * * *

    Some people mentioned my voice is a bit slow and soft in this video,
    compared to my other videos. I was recording at 2 in the morning and losing
    my voice. I’ll be sure to speed it up next time & record at a better hour!

    & makeup. :)

    Why are you shooting above 100iso when you have total control of the light.

    Good tutorial! Those tips are very handy, especially how to keep the model
    in focus while she throws her hair. Looking forward to your next video!

    How did you deal with the flash sync with a wide open aperture and high
    shutter speed?
