Shooting with Hard Light
In this live demonstration Mark Cleghorn demonstrates his approach for using hard light to create beautiful, dramatic, clean and sharp images.
Starting off with just the Maxi-lite reflector from Elinchrom. Mark demonstrates how he uses a clock face to visualise light positions to create a range of different styles and looks with a single light. Working from the beauty style of light to the sellable lighting all the way around to dramatic lighting. Then with the one light setup demonstrated, Mark adds a second light as he demonstrates how to separate the client from the background. Then moving on Mark demonstrates how to take the image to another level with the same simple setup.
