This week I have put together a collection of helpful portrait lighting diagrams; along with all the equipment used to capture them. Choosing the right equipment for your photoshoots can make your life much easier. Don’t forget a good light meter is essential, you will be surprised, I have taught a great deal of budding photographers in my workshops, and many have never used a light meter. I recommend the Sekonic L-308S , it’s simple to use and will ensure accuracy in your metering.
