In today’s TSL lesson we are going way back to the very basics of a one light setup to light a face. Our talent Tiffany Taylor is beautiful and it’s very easy to demonstrate on her face. Everything in the world is a ball, a cube or a cylinder. The human face is nothing more than a ball with features. Let’s look at how to light the face and background to create separation and interest with a single light source.
