Behind the scenes - fashion lighting set-ups

Photographers love to check out each others’ lighting setups. It’s the best way to learn from each other so here’s a quick post to demonstrate a couple of lighting setups I used on a recent portrait/fashion shoot in the studio.

The key here was simplicity. We only had a few hours and I wanted to get a few different looks, so utilising the same lights and simply altering their positions was the key.

Here are the looks and corresponding setups:

Lighting Look One



Lighting Look Two



Lighting Look Three


Lighting Look Four
