Lighting Portraits with Character: OnSet with Daniel Norton

Learn how to use light to showcase character in your subjects.

Join us On Set as Daniel Norton shows you how to create dynamic portraits using a variety of lighting tools and techniques.

Creating clean/correctly lit images is the baseline for photographers, but to get to that next level, we must shape out light to capture the essence of the character before us. Whether that image truly speaks of the person is not always important, but rather, a viewer must be able to imagine certain traits based on the light.

Is she kind? Stern? Bold? Proud? Powerful? Fearful? Goofy?

All these things can be expressed with light.
