The best way to learn portrait lighting is NOT the way that it is traditionally being taught.
Photographers often ask lazy questions like: “What’s the BEST way to learn lighting?” In return, they get a lot of lazy answers that either involve opinions, expensive equipment, or rules, or techniques that are advanced beyond their abilities.
I want to suggest an alternative approach that isn’t quite as sexy as spending a lot of money, but it is practical and works and I have helped quite a few photographers turn pro with this approach.
