Creating Beautiful Portraits with Clamshell Lighting by Mark Wallace

2/09/2021 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

In this episode, Mark Wallace walks through his process of creating a simple beauty lighting setup with limited gear options:

1. Mark uses a beauty dish to create soft directional light.
2. Mark uses a small octabox and grid to control light spill.
3. A small softbox is added to fill in the shadows.

This lighting setup is simple and easy to recreate, no matter what specific gear you own.
