About this course

Discover how to build up lighting to enhance your beauty photography. In the low-key setup you’ll see how to create razor sharp images using cinefoil and special light shaping tools like the projection spot. Then Lindsay builds up to a high key setup using a large softbox as back light and demonstrates the wrap lighting concept. She also uses a variety of light shaping tools, such as a beauty dish, grid and softbox - sometimes for theatrical effects. And she’ll share some of her skin retouching techniques with you.
