Creative Lighting Portraits

04 Mar, 2023

I’ve been working on some creative lighting styles. I’m persuading clients with more creative needs. Much of my headshot photography work is very conservative in style. I think I do that well, but I like variety and creativity. I feed the creative beast by pushing the limits whenever it is appropriate.

These portraits started out as more traditional-looking lighting. I used a large number of Photoshop tricks to create streaks of colored light on the subjects. I enjoy doing creative work in Photoshop and I’ve been developing those skills for a very long time. I started with Photoshop 2.5 in the early 90s. There were no layers and making a simple 8X10 image at 300PPI would bring the computer to its knees.
