Using Elinchrom’s fantastic D-lite studio flash system learn the 3 essential 2 light set-ups every studio photographer should learn, Hi-key, Mid-Key and Low-Key. Once mastered, these techniques will allow you to shoot pretty much anything in studio.

Mark explains and demonstrates the three key lighting styles that form the basis of most studio photography and how to achieve them using only 2 studio heads. Mark starts with darker or low-key images, using one light as the key light and one as a separation light. He then moves to mid-key, showing how to shoot with just one light as the key, and then with two lights, the second being either for separation or used on the background. Finally, Mark finishes with a simple Hi-key suitable for individuals or pairs, using the key for the subject and the second light set much higher to give the white and bright background.

Equipment: Canon 5DMkIII, Canon 24-105mm, 2x Elinchrom D-lite Ones, 2x Elinchrom Portalite Softbox, Elinchrom Skyport Trigger, Elinchrom Translucent Umbrella, Lastolite Trigrip Silver/White
