●► Lighting Tip for Fashion Photography

We’ll be shooting an episode covering fashion photography, a fascinating world, and one quite different than those we’ve covered to date.

RC Rivera has an intriguing portfolio and sent me a sample of his work with note about his lighting:

“When I was starting out I thought the more complex the lighting, the better the shot. Now I think that getting a great photo using the most simple setup is actually more difficult but also more rewarding. This model was shot in my studio with using just one soft box. Shooting from just below eye level is great for beauty shots, but too low can be very unflattering. Katherine was a great sport—my studio was unheated and it was in the middle of the winter. You can tell she’s a professional because she doesn’t even look chilly.”We’ll be picking his brains, how he approaches a shoot, other lighting tips, etc.
