A short note today. About portrait lighting.
There are many lighting schemes photographers know. One of them, as you know, is split lighting:
Split lighting means that you light exactly half the face.
Let me take away a misconception: It has nothing to do with where you shoot it from: this is short lighting; if I shot the subject from his other side, it would be broad lighting.
More on all the lighting schemes in my upcoming book “Powerful Portrait Photography”… stand by for an announcement!
