I’m a sucker for glowy skin, and this set up is how I get it – working in conjunction with my make up artist (see below).
1. Large Softbox on background – to blow out the background, set this light head to a higher output than your key light.
2. Small Softbox as key light – To get shiny highlights on the cheek bone, jaw, shoulder and nose, place the key light close to the model, at a lower output to the background light to keep that background pure white! At this point, I usually take a test shot, and ask the make up artist in the team to add more shimmer or highlight to the parts of the model I really want to shine. It’s super important to collaborate closely with the make up artist even while shooting.
4. Camera settings – Shutter speed 1/160, aperture f5.6, ISO 100.
