One of the easiest lighting set ups with the most dramatic and moody effects.
1. Large softbox as key light – Placed very close to the side of our model, you can see how the large softbox is throwing a soft even light on one side of her face shoulders and arm, and creates hard deep shadows on the other side. Deep dark shadows create drama and contrast, and help create an alluring effect. Note: the closer the light to the model, the sharper the shadows.
2. Camera settings – Shutter speed 1/160, aperture f5.6, ISO 100.
