6 Basic Portrait Photography Lighting Methods

Photographers usually use LED panel light kit to make a portrait shoot in studio. I believe everyone understands that light is a more necessary element for photography. Light can improve the quality of photos. For the most typical indoor photography,  everyone can clearly show their own lighting settings and scenery, which is the key. Below are the six most common types of lighting.

As the name suggests, it is to divide the face into two, one side is bright and the other is dark, which will create a stronger sense of drama via RGB light panels, suitable for characters with strong personality or temperament such as artists, musicians, etc. Of course, the masculine taste will also be heavier. To create this effect, place the light source at 90 degrees to the left or right of the object, and move it slightly forward or back to accommodate different shapes.

2.Ring Lighting

This is to make the nose cast some shadows on the cheeks. To achieve this effect, the light source should be slightly above eye level and 30-40 degrees above the camera (depending on the individual face). Notice the effect in the image above, the light source is slightly above eye level, the projection of the nose is not connected to the cheek shadow, but slightly downward, and the light source is not so high that the eye light is lost.Photographer can better make a better shooting by using flexible LED panel.

3、Rembrandt Lighting

The name comes from the lighting method  that the painter Rembrandt often used in painting, and the triangular light position on the face is the mark. Unlike the ring lighting, the shadows of the nose and cheeks are connected, but more importantly, the eyes on the other side of the shadow still have eye lights to maintain a piercing look and the photo is also dramatic. Meanwhile, if you can grasp the angle and composition via diffuser panel light, you can fully present the perspective of the scene and make the picture more tension.

4.Paramount light

The name of this lighting comes from the butterfly-shaped symmetrical shadow created under the nose. The light source is set directly behind the camera and creates shadows on the cheeks and chin, thus accentuating the cheekbones and making the face appear thinner and the chin sharper, enhancing the subject’s charm. However, sometimes a reflector is used or even the subject holds it for fill-in light.By the way, best lighting for photography can make a huge difference to image quality.

5.Wide light

It’s not a specific lighting setup,  but a style that can be used whether split, ring or Rembrandt. The method is actually very simple, that is, let the side that receives the light turn to the lens, so the side that receives the light will look wider, and then the whole face will look larger and wider, which is suitable for people with thin faces.

6、Thin and light

Contrary to the broad light, the darker side faces the lens, so that the face looks a little sharper and more three-dimensional and atmospheric.
