Photo Recipes: Fashion Lighting
with Scott Kelby
The Photo Recipes series continues with a focus on fashion lighting! Join Scott as he takes you through three different fashion lighting setups, from start to finish, to show you everything you need to know to recreate these fantastic looks. A lot of fashion photography is done with just one light, so whether you are using studio strobes or speedlights, you'll learn how to position the light, which lighting modifiers to use, and how to direct your subject to get each shot. The differences in each look can be subtle, but knowing how to craft each one will give you the tools to perfect the one you like best as you practice it on your own. Once the shooting is done Scott demonstrates key steps in his post-processing workflow to finish the photos for delivery to a client. BUY COURSE
