In this live demonstration Mark Cleghorn demonstrates creative ways to shape your light source to create interesting look and style.   

Mark is getting creative with light patterns, demonstrating a few techniques for using gobos or house hold objects to create range of light shapes. Mark takes you through the process of how he lights the model or background with the shaped light, explaining how to position the light to prevent unwanted shadows, how to get correct exposure, and when to bring in a second light source.
