Portraits of Hana

Today I read about some various techniques for lighting portraits. Of course it’s not good just reading about things – you have to try them.

These photos were all lit using one flash camera left, 45° from Hana, and one camera right at a lower power, 90° from Hana.

I’m pleased with the way Hana is lit and I especially like the black-and-white high contrast look. But I think something to revisit next time is the backdrop. I’m using a pale bedsheet but it looks dull in these photos. I should probably read up about backdrop lights.

I also took a handful on 35mm, so I may post some of those when I get the negatives back.

I welcome your comments on these photos too!
