Experimenting with studio lighting

My usual three light set up (one on backdrop, Key light camera right and fill left)

Introducing Arlene! Who kindly agreed to be my model for a day in the studio while I ran around moving and adjusting lights and getting her to contort into all sorts of positions ;). We had loads of fun and hopefully we'll do it again soon. This was great to get my creative juices flowing again. My personal challenge for the day was use the three studio lights in different ways to my everyday family shoot set-up. If you are interested in knowing more about the lighting in any of these images, please comment or email me and I'd be happy to fill you in. Also, love to hear your feedback on which you liked/disliked the most.

Two light set ups:

Key light to my right and one fill camera left

Key light facing model, second lighting backdrop


One light set ups:

One light above and camera left, angled downwards

One light camera right pointing down. Taken from height of a wobbly stool

Thanks Arlene!
