Using One Light
When using one light at night you have a few choices you can use. You can use a strobe monolight or constant lighting. For this shoot we used an LED light which produced a constant light that continually lights your subject.
It is very important when working with one light that you choose your light placement well. Hint: You want the light on your subject. Usually the light is placed in a frontal direction of your subject. The height of your light needs to be above your subjects head and at a distance that will generate a soft light, rather than harsh.
