In this video I deconstruct the complex 6 light setup used to create mood and drama in this floral scene. Instead of just using one broad, soft light source, I combined several different light sources (and with gels) to help create depth and mood. I used a soft overhead light source to create general illumination of the scene. Next, I added a grid to the face for contrast and to make it a bit brighter. Two rim lights with blue gels created separation and depth. Finally, two blue fill lights were used to create the overall in-camera color grading in the scene.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this, comment below with any questions.
