Tag Archives: low key lighting
I have a spare room in my house, a converted garage, that I wanted to use as a little studio, but with the white walls and the small size of the room, it was really difficult to control light. So I did what any photographer would do, I painted the room black. Now I have a nice (albeit small) studio space without the problem of unwanted fill light coming from, well, everywhere. I asked a friend to model for me so I could start playing around with different lighting setups. Here are a few shots from the session.
These were taken by placing a white shoot-through umbrella behind the subject as the only light source.
Thanks to Lauren for hanging in there while I played around trying to make things work!
