Studio Lighting Tutorial: Giant Studio vs Tiny Room

Having a large studio space is the goal of many portrait photographers in the world, or at least most of us who like to experiment with lights and have no limits imposed by low ceilings, columns or walls.



Almost a year ago, Canadian photographer Nathan Elson, not only gave us a tour of his fabulous studio in Calgary, but he also allowed us to see step by step how to create a top-level self-portrait.

Today things have changed, and from his home, Nathan has thought about a new challenge, recreating the same self-portrait in a reduced space in the basement of his house.

He will use 3 lights for this portrait (main light, fill light and backlight) in a tiny room, and as a little trick to get more contrast and decrease the light bouncing off the wall, nothing better than a couple of garbage cans. You have to use your imagination when you're confined at home.



The results were surprising. Are you able to find differences?
