3 Easy Portrait Lighting Setups for Small Spaces

When you are first starting out, you are not likely to be shooting from a dedicated studio. Most of us start out in a spare room at our home or the like, meaning we are in a tight space. That does not mean you can't take great photos in that small space, though, and this excellent video tutorial will show you three easy portrait lighting setups that work well in close quarters. 

Coming to you from Kayleigh June, this great video tutorial will show you three easy portrait lighting setups for working in a small space. One important thing to remember is that when it comes to portraits, soft lighting is generally considered more flattering, and soft light is created by sources that are large relative to the subject. Creating a large source relative to the subject can be done one of two ways: either move the source closer or increase its absolute size. All of this means that a tight space can work perfectly well with moderately sized modifiers. Check out the video above for the full rundown from June.
