TOP 10 Ways How To Shoot A Stunning Portrait


Portrait lighting


Camera settings


These are the basic lighting techniques you need to know for photography and film

Amongst the basic techniques, there’s…

1- Side lighting – Literally how it sounds, lighting a subject from the side when they’re faced toward you

2- Rembrandt lighting – Here the light is at around 45 degrees over from the front of the subject, raised and pointing down at 45 degrees

3- Back lighting – Again, how it sounds, lighting a subject from behind. This can help to add drama with silouettes

4- Rim lighting – This produces a light glowing outline around your subject

5- Key light – The main light source, and it’s not necessarily always the brightest light source

6- Fill light – This is used to fill in the shadows and provide detail that would otherwise be blackness

7- Cross lighting – Using two lights placed opposite from each other to light two subjects

5 tips for creating perfect cinematic lighting and making your work look stunning

1. Learn the rules of lighting

2. Learn when to break the rules

3. Make your key light larger

4. Reverse keying

5. Always be backlighting

Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online

Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period.

Ingmar Bergman went so far as to say, “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.”

And Akira Kurosawa acknowledged his influence too, adding, “I love all of Tarkovsky’s films. I love his personality and all his works. Every cut from his films is a marvelous image in itself.”
