This is the greatest resource for beauty and fashion lighting I’ve found on YouTube. The way you teach is both understandable and practical. Thank you for teaching us all how to take great photos. I’m a lifelong fan of yours from this day forward.

Michael Corsentino is not only a great photographer,he's a great teacher.The way he explains and presents things allowed me to understand and see the light a lot better than any tutorial I've watched before.I could probably understand Brain Surgery if he was the teacher,well maybe not Brain Surgery!

Best Tutorial EVER!!! Can't thank you enough!
Nicolas Di Santo (1 year ago)
Thanks for this content, very enlightening! I was just wondering though in which angle the beauty dish would be and how much it is above the model's head.

Very nice vid. I have a question, at what distance do you place de White V flats to make efective and consistent the reflection? Every time i place a reflector the fill is kind of invisible in comparison to no reflection, im assuming that V-flats are bigger than mine
Michael Corsentino (1 year ago)
Reflector distance depends on many variables such as the strength of the light being reflected, and the amount of fill desired. It really is season to taste. Most of the time my v-falt is placed just outside the frame. From there I adjust as needed until the fill light amount is right. Also consider using a silver reflector if white isn't geuving you the output you need. The light will be brighter but also more contrasty.

Thank you!

Awesome, 2 thumbs up... Lens advise for this kind of shooting ?

Just curious, what lens in your medium format system would give similar compression that a 35mm system would do with a 70-200mm 2.8 lens at 200mm?
Michael Corsentino (1 year ago)
Thank you! 70-200 if you have the space. Also depends on format. I was shooting medium format with 1.3x crop factor and I believe using an 80mm lens.
This is probably one of the best tutorial for one light shoot. Thank you. I have a q's: what about the actual light in the studio. Did you shoot with light out? How high were the ceiling lights? I'm planing on trying all of this setups but the space I can use is quite large. Indoors but with ambient light coming from everywhere.
Michael Corsentino (1 year ago)
When using strobes in studio situations ambient light typically isn't a consideration and isn't contributing anything to the exposure. Because the iso is low (100 in my case), the shutter speed is set at the max sync speed (x sync) and the aperture is typically stopped down a bit (in my case typically f11, f16) the ambient light plays no role. The illumination captured is strictly from the strobe(s). So there's no need to turn off the overhead lights. In other words based on the camera settings outlined absent the strobes the image would be nearly if not entirely black due to underexposure. Hope that helps.

Question! Did you light your backdrop at all for this? I didn't see any shadows on it and there was good separation between the model and backdrop
Michael Corsentino (1 year ago)
Nope, no dedicated background light(s). I relied on the key light and distance to control background illumination.

Hi - in regards to beauty dish. is this a continuous light or flash? what strobe would be compatible? thanks
Michael Corsentino (1 year ago)
I was using the Demi with a Profoto strobe however speed rings are available for Elinchrom, Alien Bee, BronColor and other Strobes. Continuos sources can also be used.

This is too awesome for words!

Thank you!
Stefanie Chareonbood (2 years ago)
Hi Michael. Great tutorial!! Really helped me a lot to get an idea of a proper lighting. May I ask; what angle did you use for your second look, 45% from above? Also, if the model stands 20 feet away from the background, she won't be standing on the "paper" no more (exept you have a reeaally one ;-)), so fullbody pictures will not be really possible, or do you edit that later on in ps? And last question ;) Is the backgroundwall a light grey or white? Not sure. Sorry, and thanks so much! ;) Greetings from Switzerland
Michael Corsentino (2 years ago)
Thank you Stefanie! This was shot on a white cyc wall in a large studio space so distance wasn't an issue. No PS work on the background was necessary ;-)
