Hi guys! Today's video is all about my current favourite beauty studio lighting setup. I explain the use of lighting via a diagram, and show some behind the scenes during the tutorial.

Have you tried shooting into a deep umbrella? If not definitely give that a shot pun intended 😂 it's a really good setup to use and the lighting is even across the models face I think you would love a setup like that
Hi Kayleigh! thanks for the informative video! I wanted to ask you how much ambient light was there? from the video, it looks like there was enough ambient light there to serve as fill, so you didn't need to employ a reflector or 2nd light from below to reduce shadows. if it had been dark, light from the beauty dish alone would have been quite contrasty as well as background being quite darker. is that correct?
Thank you very much! I am getting into beauty photography and trying what I feel most comfortable in, i love the idea of daylight filled with soft beauty dish light. I am little worried about the temperature only. Thanks again I appreciate your reply!
Just a little tip for what its worth.... Set the LCD image to display in the same orientation at the sensor.... So in portrait mode the image makes use of all the entire screen, without the black bars either side, as in 3:49 ..... :)
Some remarks - you said that the beautydish is 1 to 1,5 m away, but during your shooting is it much further away leading to a smoother progression from light to shadows. We also see that you take a picture and than instantly look at your camera's screen. Tell the model that you do a test and than shoot while keeping contact. Have fun!
Hi Peter! The light was definitely on average around 1-1.5 metres away, it may have been moved around slightly but the distance mainly remained the same.
Particularly when I'm photographing beauty, there's a lot of things to consider especially with everything being in complete focus. That's why with a few of those images, I'm a little more 'careful' with each shot, especially when I'm trying to get a specific kind of shot. Usually though I'll take a group of around 5-6 images and then have a look at the screen. Thanks for watching! 😊
+AleksanderEspelid That means the sound was recorded mono, not stereo. Headphones are stereo and will split the sound among the two for more depth and richness. If recorded in stereo, you'd hear it in both, if recorded mono, it will go only to one headphone ;)
