Portrait Photography Nelspruit – Shaping Light with Julia Ngwenya

What I’ve enjoyed most about the studio environment is the fact that you can control the light source and the subject, from a wildlife background this was never the case and I had to make do with what was given to me.

Now one of my specialities is portrait photography in Nelspruit, so when Julia came in for a photo shoot I thought I would make use of her dark skin tone to shape the light, creating a more 3 dimensional feel. Shaping light is always easier with darker skin tones as it gives you a wider tonal range to work with, the larger your light source, the softer the effect will be, creating specular highlights as the lighter areas until the light falls off creating the darker areas.
