This series of guides aims to help photographers master a key aspect of wedding and portrait photography, which is lighting using a variety of methods: speedlights, available light as well as natural light. Available light does not always mean natural light, because available light can come from any light source, including the overhead spot light used in a wedding ballroom.
SimpleSLR Portrait Lighting
SimpleSLR Portrait Lighting is the anchor guide that will help you create portraits at the speed of light. I will show you simple lighting techniques that create powerful results, which can be put together very quickly using the most basic equipment. This is the first guide you should purchase as it contains foundation skills for using speedlights effectively.
Analyzing the Shot
In the 3-volume companion guides Portrait Recipes (available individually or as a bundle), various different scenarios are illustrated, and 24 different detailed lighting setups are revealed. You will see why I chose the settings I used, and also be able to see how different settings would have resulted in a different feel in the portrait. Detailed diagrams showing placement of lights (be it speedlights or available light) accompany each scenario, with EXIF settings shown, and my thought process described.
