This is a basic lighting setup that I use often, something I call the “Oblique Upper Right” lighting. There’s probably a more technical term for it; I don’t care. I like to use this technique to really isolate my subject from their background. I teach more about this stuff at my workshops, you can visit the workshop page to learn more. I’ll be teaching all over the world, including England Brazil, Italy, India, Japan, Australia, and Ireland. Thanks for reading! Subscribe below for more tips!
