Up Next in Long Exposure Portraits With Jake Hicks

  • Posing

    With proper wardrobe selected, lighting and camera settings honed, and camera movement on the subject refined, focus on the proper posing to shape light trails around your subject. Compare Rear vs Front Curtain Sync Flash methods with best practices for this studio shoot.

  • Backlight

    Work to adjust the backlight to create a perfect balance between the key and fill lights. Test a few exposures, continuing to dial in the balance for optimum balance of skin exposure, shadow latitude, focus, contrast, and dimension.

  • Frequency Separation

    Utilize the same procedural method to maximize skin tonality, texture and quality. Apply this skin smoothing process to minor fabric inconsistencies.
