Shadow, Emotion, Mood, Storytelling; all of these are foundational elements of a dramatic portrait. For photographers aching to improve their grasp on the tools of dramatic portraiture, knowing where, and how to start, can puzzle even the most sophisticated of artists.

Chris shares his approach to using light, shadow, and mood to tell the stories of his subjects. This tutorial focuses on the methods to understand and craft light, and is perfect for photographers looking to take their portrait work to new levels.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • About Advanced Lighting For Dramatic Portraits

Few things move viewers like the emotion and mood of a well-executed dramatic portrait. Chris takes you step-by-step in this all-inclusive walkthrough of his advanced portrait workflow. The story-telling centrality of his method lies in the understanding that crafting light should help to fulfill the narrative, not the other way around.

By the end of this tutorial you will be able to make an informed and intelligent approach to your lighting setup, light your sets with intent and purpose, focusing on direction, angle, and falloff as well as capture images rich in story, with cinematic lighting and styling.

Parts 2, 3, 4 are all part one (that explains the equal size) part 5 is part 5 but as well as in part one in part 5 too is a non-uncrunchable part when decompressing. Poor!


To be more precise: in part one ite “02-06-Technical Lighting-Lighting Patterns” that didn’t extract properly.
—im part 5 it was ’05-34-Nativity Scene-Assembly’
Parts 2, 3, 4 are all identical with part one, so ….
please let me kwow, when you fixed it this course was the (main) reason to join!
