Short Lighting – Studio Lighting Setup

  • Main light is off from the camera axis
  • Light falls mainly on the side of the face that is farthest from the camera
  • Good for subjects with more round face
  • Popular for dramatic look
  • Move light farther away to produce Rembrandt lighting – creating a triangle of light on the camera side upper cheek
