Part 5 of Tips & Tricks of studio lighting techniques

Profile Lighting

Profile lighting (also called rim lighting) is used when the subject’s head is turned 90 degrees from the camera lens. It is a dramatic style of lighting used to accent elegant features. It is used less frequently now than in the past, but it still produces a stylish portrait.

This gives such nice angles to the shot and makes it so much more interesting than looking at a nice,  NORMAL shot,. Angles create interest and mystery.  Always try and take a picture that is MORE than just a shot.  Take a picture with passion and the results speak for themselves. I can teach you how to position a light and how to stand but once you put your own stamp on it,  you always see that  will the meaning becomes more. A photographer always strives for more! We are not satisfied as we are always looking for perfection. It is never achieved but gives us the encouragement to strive to better ourselves!
