Fashion Lighting 1, 2, 3
with Lindsay Adler
Fashion photographer Lindsay Adler brings us on set to learn how to create striking beauty images with just one, two or three lights. Lindsay starts building the foundation with just one light, then teaches you how to expand on that with a second light, before getting even more creative with a third. This class is all about taking control of the light, choosing the right modifier, (whether a beauty dish, silver dish, ring flash, or even some unusual light sources you've never tried before). Along the way she also offers tips on taking inspiration from magazines, styling, and lenses to use that pair with the light to make sure your setup always meets your end goal. <br> <br> This class is perfect for anyone interested in picking up the basics of fashion photography.

lesson 2: The Beauty Dish

The beauty dish is the most commonly used light modifier in fashion photography, and adding in flags and reflectors makes it even more versatile.

11min, 21sec
lesson 3: Beauty Boxes and Grids

The beauty box is a great technique for using with a beauty dish, it's not as soft as a softbox and not as harsh as a silver dish. Grids give you more control in the falloff of the light.

8min, 46sec
lesson 7: A Twist on Clamshell Lighting

Another use for a second light is to illuminate your subject with both lights from the front.

6min, 32sec
lesson 8: Silhouettes and Gels

A focus on shape or color can be achieved by shooting the subject in silhouette or by gelling your lights to emphasize different colors.

11min, 29sec
lesson 9: Using Two or Three Lights

Adding a second light can be used for more than just separating the subject from the background, while adding a third light gives you even more control.

10min, 27sec
lesson 10: Getting More Creative

Using more lights can give you a lot more creative freedom.
