Portraits have been used to show off the power, importance, virtue, beauty, taste, learning or other qualities.

Photographers sometimes include depictions of themselves in larger group portraits; this may be a self-portrait in another type of composition.

Lighting portraits and the different types:

Three-point lighting

One of the most basic lighting plans is called a three-point lighting. This plan uses three (and sometimes four) lights to fully model (bring out details and the three-dimensionality of) the subject’s features. The three main lights used in this light plans.

Key light

A key light that is also called a main light, or a key light is usually placed to one side of the subject’s face, between 30 and 60 degrees off center and a bit higher than eye level. The purpose of the key-light is to give shape (modelling) to a subjectwhich is typically a face. This relies on the first meaning of lighting, white comes out of a plane and black goes back into a plane. The depth of shadow which is made by the main-light that can be controlled with a fill-light.

High light

This is a technique used to help a portrait where the main color is white or light-yellow. The background should be white with several lights that can be used, all at the same time.


Opposed to high-key portraits, this skill is used only to highlight a specific part of the subject’s face, often half of the face if only one light source is used or just the facial contour if two lights are used.Portraits with a difference marshall photography

Fill-in light

In modern photography the fill-in light is used to control the contrast in the scene, it is nearly always placed above the lens axis which is a large light source, think of the sky behind your head when taking a photograph.

The amount of light that is less than the key-light (main-light), that fills and acts by lifting the shadows only particularly relevant in digital photography where the noise lives in the shadows. A 2 second stop reduction in intensity for the fill-light would be a typical start point to maintain dimensionality (modelling) in a portrait (head and shoulder) shot.Portraits with a difference marshall photography

About the Author

I have photographed people, portraits and landscapes, professionally for over five years. I slowly became fascinated with wedding events and wedding photography. So, after booking in my first few weddings, I have never looked back and love helping couples collect precious, treasured and often silly little memories from the big day. I feel privileged to genuinely enjoy what I do, which is reflected in my work and has enabled me to meet people from all walks of life – some of whom have become good friends over the years.
