Speedlight Photography: Dramatic Beauty Lighting

Speedlight Photography: Dramatic Beauty Lighting

http://smokingstrobes.com/topdown – Here’s a way to achieve a beauty light with some drama in speedlight photography. You place a shoot through umbrella right above your model. It works wonders – even in small and narrow sets like a group of three models in a regular hotel room. Speedlight photography is ideal for on location gigs like these. This Beauty Lighting tutorial illustrates this fact. Check it out and have fun with your own speedlight photography.

I wish you good light!

    Loved it. Very creative lighting setup with economical gear. Also, I
    really enjoy presentation, and your dry, subdued, almost surreal sense of
    humour. Thanks for sharing!
