It's Day 5 of my Six Days of Speedlite Shooting tips.
Today's tip: Study the Works of the Master Painters.
Concept: Study the works of master painters. See how they used shadows and highlights to create their masterpieces. That's what I did for my photograph, "The Girl with a Pearl Earring."
To light my subject, I used one light: Canon 580EX II in the Westcott Apollo soft box.
Once again, you don't need a fancy studio to make nice portraits. I took the photograph in my office.
