Shallow Depth of Field Portraits Using High-Speed Sync | Eli Infante

CROSS LIGHTING #1

If you only have one strobe, you can use the sun as your rim light to create cross lighting. In this scenario, I will have the sun behind my subject, 45 degrees camera left, and my strobe in front of the subject, 45 degrees camera right. Cross lighting is my go-to setup when I need to move quickly, especially for client work. I find less is more when working with people who are new to being in front of the camera. Too many lights can intimidate your subject.
