HORN PHOTO Lumic Circuit Training #6 portrait mode



the portrait station we have our beautiful model Sara here and I just want to go over a few things on how to use your lumix for portraits number one thing is awesome you should go to your focus modes and choose face detection out-of-focus because it will automatically see the face let's just turn this on see that it selects your face no matter where she goes it follows the face and when I press it see how it turns green I know it's in focus and then look at that crosshair it even tells you which eye is the being given priority in case it's really shallow depth-of-field it's awesome you never miss it with a face detection autofocus so I always turn it on for any time I do portraits so that's looking pretty good right there so what I'm going to do is kind of refine the light just a little bit so my exposure is pretty good I'm on manual 2.8 at 160 I do have my zebras on so if this were to light like that see how I've got zebras on her shirt and on her cheekbones I know that's gonna be blown out so I have dialed it in where it's a good exposure I feel like that's a little too contrast you know so let me refine this a little first thing I'm going to do is if you turn the body away from the light it's more dimensional so turn your knees this way a little bit that looks good and nice and tall now now her face is really dark so I want to have you turn your face towards the light oh that's beautiful a little bit more now we're getting this beautiful Rembrandt light that triangle of light on her cheek that is gorgeous now I feel like this shadow side is a little bit dark let me just fix your hair and I want to bring a little light in here so if I bring my reflector in look how it lights up the shadow side that makes a huge difference so much better so I'm gonna take a couple shots just like that oh I love it right there oh the wind is even blowing your hair that's perfect face that way trace a light a little bit more there you go oh I love it now if I want to like to even be more soft I can add an additional light so this is a beautiful LED light and I'm just gonna turn that in and look at that how it softens the light it gives a little more catch light to her eyes actually kind of warms it up just a little bit and it's perfect so nice and tall and chin up just a little bit and lean forward from the waist a little chin back towards the light there you go that's amazing where's that magic smile right there perfect I'm gonna have you bring your hand up just like this oh yeah beautiful and face back that way a little bit how about chin down dear yeah next to your shoulder let me zoom in just a little bit and eyes down to the ground oh and look right up at me beautiful hey Sara good job
