Portrait Adventures with Tyler Dean King

Portrait #3– One Light

Today in the studio we worked with the photogenic monolights to produce one light images. We also worked with the beauty dish, grid spots, alien bees, and several backdrops. We learned about broad and short light and how to pose a person so the light flatters their face. It was
