Studio Lighting Setup 2 | Clamshell
This studio lighting technique is used to capture every detail with even light
This studio lighting setup is great for beauty images as the lighting is flat and even.
It’s pretty easy to achieve this effect too – all you need to do is place two softboxes on either side of your subject at the same angle and at an equal distance.
Set the power so it’s the same from each light. Try using a reflector under the face – your model should easily be able to hold this.
This will bounce light up and onto the face.
■ Two flash heads ■ Two 66cm softboxes ■ One reflector ■ Two light stands
