To followup on my Beauty Photography Lighting Workshop at LACP, this is 3 of 4 short and sweet tutorials that I hope you enjoy.

These posts will cover use of Interfit Photographic lighting equipment. As you know, I am an Interfit Brand Ambassador. And just a note, as an Ambassador I try out, use, and post about their products, but I am not paid to do so. I stand by their products and love the equipment, as well as the company and the people behind the products.

Beauty Post 2: ClamShell Lighting w/ halo

Clamshell lighting is foolproof beauty lighting 101, and we can make it more interesting by adding a hair-light or even lighting the background to create separation and achieve a halo type effect.  One light centered front & above the subject, and a little bounce from a white reflector, so we have some shadow under the chin.. plus a strobe with a 40 degree grid directed at the background. The whole effect with the pose and props, reminds me of a painting.

Lens: Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L series

Settings: ISO:100, 1/125th @ f/5.6

Using a white reflector to bounce the light leaves a little shadow under the chin, which flatters most subjects. Here I make use of 1 Interfit S1 Monolight strobes with a Beauty dish.  The background light is an S1 with a 40 degree grid directed at the background.  These S1, 500w HSS AC/DC powered strobes are only $749.99 currently down from $999 a unit, already half the price of the competitors. Use my discount code for an extra 10% off EMERY10

Here's some BTS of the set-up
