This harkens back to my post from February on Lighting Exercises. The more I play with lighting scenarios the more comfortable I get with it! There are times when it's a well thought out plan and other times where it's a "let's see what this will do…." kind of day. Any way you light it - it's a learning curve within the process.
For these two photos I experimented with split lighting. Keeping a good portion of the portrait in shadow to add drama.
It's good to see both sides of the split. Each one holds its own share of drama. More fun ahead as I venture into the "Tunnel of Lighting" Once you go in the fear subsides and you're hooked for life!
There's always another tunnel to explore….
