These different types of lighting create different gradients and colours of light giving an image more meaning and depth. The way the light is enables the image to be more interesting and direct to what you want for your shoot.
Joel Grimes. I’m a minimalist and like using one light whenever I can. The problem with using one light is a lot of times you are left with areas of shadows. Now, if that’s the look you’re going for, have at it, but if you need a clean well-lit beauty portrait, using one light can seem challenging at first. But with the help of a reflector and changing the position of your main light, you can create a few different looks quickly and easily.
