Cecile Lafforgue – Lighting Workshop

Studio Lighting – In Class Shooting October 23rd 2017

Last week was about portrait, lighting and emotions. I shot C and leveraged the lights to emphasize emotions. Not an easy exercise for me but glad I did it.

Studio Lighting – In Class Shooting October 2nd 2017

New series of studio shots. The post prodution work on those have been very limited to highlight the impact of the lighting. White balances adjustment and croping were the only things applied to those pictures.

SVA-Workshop-Shoot2-2

Tota light left side – DP light right side with right umbrella. As the lights were too strong, they were pushed back and a white umbrella was added on the DP light. This resulted in a much better exposition; as opposed to the previous shot which is overexposed and clear colors are washed out.
