If you’re new to portrait photography, you might have seen or heard the term, “key light” being used, and wondered what a key light actually is. In this video, Ed Verosky is going to explain the role of the key light in the context of a basic portrait lighting setup.


If you’re not quite ready for that, or multi-light off-camera flash in general, download his free guide, 10-Min. Guide to On-Camera Flash (it comes with free access to my mini-course about on-camera flash). It’s a great way to get started with flash if you’re still learning!
