In this instructional tutorial Damien Lovegrove shows you how he lights and captures portraits on location using a combination of speedlights, big flash and available ambient light. Learn how Damien moulds the shape, amount and direction of light using softboxes, panel reflectors, stands, boom arms, curtains and umbrellas. You will also be shown how Damien chooses his camera and flash settings (shutter speed, ISO, aperture, flash power etc.).
As with all Lovegrove video productions you’ll also be able to see how Damien interacts with his models and carefully directs every element in the creation of his shots.

What will I receive?
This video production has been split into several bite sized parts to make it quicker and easier to download. Each part is a zipped folder containing the video files you need. Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped everything, place all the files into one folder and store in a safe and convenient place on your computer. We recommend that you download one part at a time to help reduce the chance of a connection failure, resulting in incomplete files.

How do I play the video on my tablet or smart phone?
We recommend you first download the files onto a desktop or laptop computer, where, in most cases, you have the ability to extract (unzip) the zipped files.
