Lighting Recipes - Exactly How to Get "The Look."

I talk to so many photographers out there that are struggling with these popular lighting and post processing looks, and I really wanted to create something so direct, so easily repeatable, that they could start using these techniques literally today.

So many photographers struggle with getting a particular look to their images, especially the really popular looks you see all over the Web today, and these looks — it’s not just one thing. It’s a combination of lighting techniques, camera settings, and the editing and retouching of the files after in Photoshop or Lightroom. That’s why Scott Kelby, author of the smash bestselling book, “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” has just released the first online class in a series designed to teach photographers how to get those very same looks.

In this just released online class, from KelbyOne (an online educational community for creative people), Scott takes students step-by-step through the process; starting with an empty studio — they see everything come together, from the lighting gear, the exact positioning of the lights, the shooting portion and the Photoshop retouching and post processing to get the exact style they’re looking for.

This first class in the series is on creating a really dramatic look for portraits, and besides the lighting he goes into how and why to use a fan in the studio, and posing techniques, and how to work with your subjects to get professional looking results.

“I talk to so many photographers out there that are struggling with getting some of these popular lighting and post processing looks, and I really wanted to create something so direct, so easily repeatable, that they could start using these techniques literally today,” Kelby says. “My job has always been to figure these things out; break them down, and teach them in a way that anybody can start doing it themselves, and this new series is all about that. You don’t need high end lights or cameras — you just have to follow along with whatever you have, and I’ll get ya there,” he added.

Some of Scott’s other popular online classes at KelbyOne.com are “How to Build Your Audience on Instagram;” “Crush the Composition” and “How to create beautiful Wedding Albums in Lightroom.”
