Clamshell Lighting

Clamshell Lighting

I had a model scheduled for today, and yet again had a cancellation. I used the time to try out what is referred to as clamshell lighting. Basically, I have an umbrella/octabox slightly above the model’s face, and another slightly below the model’s face. The higher light is one stop hotter than the lower light.

The setup itself resembles a clamshell eating the model, hence the name of the technique.
