For generations, there were only tungsten lights. Even when studio flash first appeared, it was generally out of the enthusiast’s price range. Nowadays, every discussion of portraiture begins with a statement that tungsten lighting is obsolete except for video, so it’s encouraging to see someone using “hot lighting” for a portrait.

Thank you for showing the how-to. I was looking for the diagram to give me an idea on how to improve it. My instructor recommended Adorama.

Didn’t mean to pick it apart 🙁  When I shot as a Pro I was a member of the PPA & the Florida FPPA and had many prints entered in shows for merit, which I saw how they picked a print apart. LOL  I ended up with 6 Merits total and had a few prints go in the National Tour. We didn’t have computers in those days. LOL  Don’t take it personal, just my opinion. LOL Great video though 🙂

Nice. Good stuff. I must strive to attain this level of badassery.

Davi Rosa says:

For 30´s portrait look it´s ok to have shadows. The portraits in that decade were made this way. Daniel Norton explained before starting.
I feel kind of ashamed when I read comments about shadows and so on. Why people today just want “shadowless” portraits? Personally i find very nice to learn different styles o lightning setup and their result on the photo look/style.
So thanks a lot Daniel.
I should say also that I bought a lot of equipment in Adorama just because of the Adorama TV! 🙂
Hugs from Brazil!

A nice little video on my favourite style of Portraiture. Hollywood glamour 20′ to 40’s style. Add a cocktail, pearl necklaces or cigarette holder with smoking cigarettes as props and your onto a winner in my book….. Thank you.

Juliawan Wijaya says:

nice review about camera 🙂

hawg427 says:

Everything but the horrible hard shadow on her Right eye lashes or her hair, I can’t tell. Should have been corrected using the lights before post production.  Sorry but I’m an old timer and you had to do it right when shooting because retouching the pic or the negative was an added expense. I would have had my camera about 1-2 in. higher also. Beautiful model. 🙂

Peter Drage says:

Great video as usual, interesting Title.  GLAMOUR Photography means something very different in the UK.
