02/27/2014 1:00 PM EDT - Beautiful Portraits with Continuous Light


They run hot, the color spectrum is off and the light is uneven from continuous light kits – isn't it? Don’t you need to use studio strobes for beautiful portraits?

If you thought that was the case, you’ll be surprised to see how continuous lights can be both beautiful and easy to use. Join host Joe Brady as he uses a single Bowens Streamlite 530, a reflector and a Sekonic L-478DR light meter in a simple yet effective studio set.

You’ll see the benefits a light meter can bring to this type of lighting by providing the information you need to get it right in camera. Only a light meter can accurately measure the directional light that is illuminating your subject – no missed shots, no missed opportunities, perfect exposure every time.

Join us for this free session and learn the tools and techniques that allow you to create beautiful portraits with continuous lights.

This is a great starter video for those who are contemplating getting into portraits. The techniques do not require a lot of equipment, and they are presented in an easy-to-understand format. Concepts were well isolated, eliminating possible conflicts of technique application. I enjoyed this video, even though I have shot for a long time, as I found clear explanations for the procedures I already apply to my own images. I shoot a lot of natural history subjects, not just portraits, but the knowledge and awareness of light on the subject is well referenced in this video. Sometimes I even have wildlife or flora to shoot in a studio situation. This instruction also lends to the best lighting for those as well. A thumbs-up for Joe on this one. Close
