Chapter 6. People Photography >  Using Multiple Light Sources

Using Multiple Light Sources

As I warned you in the previous section, the best portrait lighting involves at least two, and often three or more light sources. The light sources don’t always have to be incandescent lights or electronic flash. Figure 6.10, for example, was shot using window light (from the rear), light bounced from a flat reflector you can see at the right side of the image, and from another reflector at camera position (which you can’t see). This section will introduce you to each type of light source, and the terminology used to describe it.

Figure 6.10. Only window light and reflectors were used for this bridal portrait.
