STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY

Portrait Photography

A studio photography project showcasing ‘Butterfly Lighting’ and exploring the concept of ‘beauty’ in male portraiture.

Butterfly lighting is commonly used in beauty shots and high-end portraits requiring soft, flattering light like glamour or fashion shoots.

This is a soft key light directed right at the model’s face from an angle above. The light allows model’s skin to be idealized as much as possible. This lighting setup is often used in Fine Art Portrait Photography.
