Join Lindsay Adler, Fashion and Portrait Photographer, and learn how to create striking beauty imagery using one, two, or three lights in your setups. Lindsay starts building the foundation with just one light, then teaches you how to expand on that with a second light, before getting even more creative with a third. This class is all about taking control of the light, choosing the right modifier, (whether a beauty dish, silver dish, ring flash, or even some unusual light sources you’ve never tried before), and always making sure your setup meets your end goal.

Lindsay talks about what will be covered in the course.
The beauty dish is the most commonly used light modifier in fashion photography, and adding in flags and reflectors makes it even more versatile.
The beauty box is a great technique for using with a beauty dish, it's not as soft as a softbox and not as harsh as a silver dish. Grids give you more control in the falloff of the light.
The silver dish is a very contrasty and dramatic light that comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.
The ability to work with different light modifiers, from ring lights to black light, can help you stand out from the crowd.
A second light can be used to help separate the subject from the background.
Another use for a second light is to illuminate your subject with both lights from the front.
A focus on shape or color can be achieved by shooting the subject in silhouette or by gelling your lights to emphasize different colors.
Adding a second light can be used for more than just separating the subject from the background, while adding a third light gives you even more control.
Using more lights can give you a lot more creative freedom.
