One of the things that make a professional photographer’s images more impactful than those that everyday joes take is the lighting. The pros understand where to place the light, how to angle the light for the greatest impact, how strong the light should be, and so on.
They probably have all the gear that allows them to perfect the lighting as well!
But that doesn’t mean that you have to invest in thousands of dollars of equipment to get a great one-light portrait setup. In fact, you can get pro-level results by using little more than just a single studio strobe or a speedlight. In the video below, Craig Beckta clues us into exactly how that’s done with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions, including how to position the light, how to direct the light, and how to improve the quality of the light as well.
