Joel Grimes "Portrait Photography on Location" Lesson 5 - One Light Cross Light Portrait
Discover the most beautiful light on the planet, the “One light cross light”. Often referred to as the Rembrandt Light, this lighting technique helps to reveal character in your subjects. For the first 25 years of Joel’s photography career, this one light cross light technique was all he used. It really is magical light.
"In this video tutorial Joel demonstrates how he uses cross light on three different subjects. Some of the topics covered are: using shutter speed to control the ambient light, controlling flare, fixed vs zoom lenses, and overcoming obstacles during the session. The video portion of the behind the scenes will give you a visual understanding of how he creates his favorite cross lighting technique. It includes three different subjects in different locations. First is Don at his junk yard, next is Amber in an open field, and lastly Greg on his horse. The hero shot of Don in his junk shed was used by Canon to advertise their newest printers. The most amazing thing about this video is Joel shows how amazing images can be created in the most unlikely of places, and all with only one light. In the last part of this video tutorial Joel shows his step by step post-production workflow. Joel's process is consistent with the other videos. In this post-production workflow He uses Adobe Camera Raw, along with Photoshop to create his signature style portraits we are familiar with." - Steve Slate
