SETTING STUDIO LIGHT FOR BEGINNERS.
POPULAR LIGHTING diagrams.
Want to learn how to work with studio lighting but don't know where to start?
When you come to a photo studio, you need to know:
1) How to adjust the light source
2) How to set up synchronization with the camera so as not to run after the administrator and not waste time
3) How to set up remote control of multiple light sources (so as not to constantly run to the light source and not change the settings there)
4) What camera settings should you use
5) What lighting diagrams to use to illuminate 1 or more models in the frame
This PDF guide is intended for those who want to get answers to all these questions, learn how to work with light more confidently, understand what each button on a synchronizer or monoblock is responsible for, and how to take the desired shot with beautiful light.
This tutorial will guide you through the technicalities of lighting, camera and sync settings, and will provide you with a set of popular lighting schemes in commercial photography that you can use for both individual and group portraits. In this tutorial, we analyze the operation of the most common Profoto equipment. The settings for light sources from other manufacturers are absolutely identical with minimal differences, so if your photo studio has a source from another brand, you can easily work with it.
This tutorial will save you hours of studio rental and take your photography to the next level!
