This studio lighting technique has loads of drama built into it.  It is not your “normal” everyday lighting style, but rather use it for high impact shots that need lots of highlights and shadows.

Your mentor, Mike Luter, shows you step-by-step how to set up your lighting.

The lighting equipment he will be using are:

  • 7″ Parabolic light with a grid  (main light)
  • 3′x4′ Softbox (fill light)
  • 12″ Parabolic light with barn doors (edge light)
  • 9″ Parabolic light with 15 degree grid (background light)

He will walk you step by step as he positions and meters each light.

Step 1: Set the fill light

Step 2: Set the Main Light

Step 3: Set the Edge Light

Step 4: Set the background light

Step 5: Start taking high impact photos like the ones below.
