know the diff between Broad and Short Lighting, it helps alot. Caesda still getting the hang of it, give time will get it.

It's always good to know the model, know what to do with the lights.

Broad - good for subject with more narrow face.

Short is the other bway round.

Ohhh.. let me add, not shot in my studio in my class lah ... ( clarrify a bit )

Oh yah, also let me add I would like to the comment on the "That's how she looks" part.

If everyone that shot portraits took pictures of how the people really looked like..we'd all be out of business.

No one wants pictures of how they really look, if they want that they can snapshot themselves or look in the mirror.

Photography is not about reality unless you're a journalist, even then you can make portraits more flattering with good use of light and angles.

You are right. The shots of Evon here were not shot at your studio or workshop.
I have to work with what ever light setting that was provided which did not take into consideration of the face of the model.

Thanks for your clarification Duke, on the broad and short lights. I was not aware of the impact of the difference in light set-up on the face of the model because the light set-up at your studio is normally in order and would suit the models.

Haha, KK, she was in my studio before and some people on MSN said it was shot in my studio, and said how come I set broad for female and never looked after the camera Axis point of view lah and all the rocket science and snake oil.... and we were discussing that it's impossible etc etc, then they show me this thread

So the post was to get back at them.

To the gang on MSN.... Two fingers!!!!!

This was how the lights were set up at the studio.
