Self Image Critique: Soft Lighting Done Wrong (ish)

April 1, 2018

The purpose of this blog is to share what I learn with lighting in hopes that it will help you guys as well! In this video I share how I screwed up a portrait and what I would do to fix it in the future! Leave a comment below if you have ever had the same issue.

Here is the video where I go step by step on what I screwed up. In the future I would put more diffusion on the bottom and also make sure the face is the brightest part in the image. I will also use my meter and check the shoulder to make sure there is not to much light and not enough detail.


Here is a more in depth video that talks about soft lighting from James Schmelzer




Hope this helps!
