    I’m just an amateur and I’m more into street photography with almost no
    flash light use but I highly appreciate the lesson you’ve taught me. The
    way you explain the light source sounds a little bit like photography CSI,
    though. 😉

    I would have NEVER thought to look at portraiture in this way.
