In this video, Jiggie Alejandrino will show you the easiest way to create a beautiful studio portrait using just one speed light off-camera. As with all his lighting tutorial videos, he will be giving you a behind-the-scenes and live view (SOOC) look of the entire shoot.


If you've ever seen a high-budget movie, you know that some of the magic is in how the camera moves. If the Director of Photography did their job well, the camera will move seamlessly from one position to another.

There is no way the camera just floats in the air like this?

In today’s video we go over “flagging," including solids, silks, scrims, double nets and full solid flags, all of which shape and control light. John Gress even threw in a cucoloris for good measure. (What's the plural of cucoloris?)

While he has heard people refer to these collectively as “flags," the vernacular seems to be that something that light passes through is a scrim and something that blocks light fully is a flag. The Matthews RoadFlags kit for instance only has ONE flag. Maybe they should call it RoadFlag or RoadScrims. ;)
