Learn how to create dramatic lighting in a small studio. We join Mark Cleghorn for a live demonstration as he demonstrates his techniques to create drama in a small studio space.

For his demonstration Mark is shooting a series of dramatic images of a ballerina. As he shares his approach and easy to recreate techniques for getting variety within a small space, through the use of posing and lighting. Mark takes you through his setup, demonstrating how he uses one, two and three lights to capture different levels of drama within an image. With just a small area to shoot in, Mark demonstrates how to get the most out of the space. Using multiple setups and backgrounds without having to change set, these simple techniques are valuable for any size studio.
