Lighting Diagram - One Light Portrait

Create dramtic looks with One Light

All you need is one light too create wonderful images, I will be posting more intuitive lighting diagrams that will cover a variety looks for both the technical and organic ways of capturing light. This is what I call combination lighting using the sun as the kicker or back light. This is an good example of 3:1 ratio, natural sunlight was metered at f11 so I metered the flash to the model at 7.1 to capture this portrait.

I used a "Sekonic L-358"
