Two Light Studio Portraits

HERE’S THE ASSIGNMENT

Make two portraits of a musician in the studio using multiple lights, and/or gels and grid spots. Demonstrate your control of the main light and secondary light(s), their shadows and highlights.

 

HOW TO APPROACH THIS ASSIGNMENT

•This should be shot as though you are working for a producer or recording label to create the musician’s “style,” or image, for this new release. 

•Think of this as your opportunity to shoot a young musician for a new CD or album cover.

•Plan your portrait session in advance.  Talk with your musician about what you want them to wear, and the ”look” you are trying to achieve. 

*Experiment with different moods, changing your lighting ratios, backgrounds, light diffusion (using large and/or small light source(s), with hard or soft shadows) and background colors.    

•During your shoot, make a photo that shows your lighting setup.

Submit two multiple light portraits of your musician.
