Creating a Sense of Depth and Dimension in Your Portraits With Flash – Free Quick Guide

Lighting a portrait well makes all the difference.

Flat, dull light may not provide the atmosphere you want, and high-contrast lighting can be challenging.

Adding a little flash to your portrait session affords you a greater level of control, and this can bring depth and dimension to your portrait photography.

Here is what is discussed in this guide:

  • Why flat lighting can produce dull portraits
  • Why introducing a second light source helps to create depth
  • The importance of knowing your gear so you can act quickly
  • Controlling your flash output
  • How to create foreground and background contrast
  • The challenge of using minimal depth of field while using electronic flash and ambient lighting together
  • Why flash direction is crucial
  • Creating a foreground, middle ground, and background
  • Creating a leading line
  • Framing your subject
  • Common mistakes
