Two Light Setup and Petra / by Christopher Myers

I'm often asked to help develop models and for this particular shoot we decided to go with a studio setting. This whole set was done with just two lights, one as a key and another as a rim light in the jumping/rocker looks. When working with minimal light sources it's important to learn about feathering and placing your model. I'd highly recommend all beginners to start with just one light to see how this works. Don't try eliminate shadows, just make them interesting. An optional piece of equipment is a reflector. The bigger the better for full length shots like these. It will soften the shadows significantly. If anyone has specific questions, please feel free to email me.
