LIGHTING STYLES

Depending on the required use of the photo, there are two main lighting styles with multiple variations on them. The "general lit" and the more "dynamic" high contrast. Below is an example of the two contrasting lighting styles as used in the below "couples" photography example. If you have a preference, or wish a combination of the two, please specify prior to the photo shoot. In group photography, the more general lit approach is typically used.
