Advanced One Light Setup Techniques – Photography & Video Tutorial

** Win a Spider Holster Pro Single Camera System:…

From Jay P. Morgan,

Today on the Slanted Lens we show you Advanced One Light Setup Techniques. We are shooting in a studio in downtown Los Angeles.

We have beautiful Cynthia Chavez on our set and we will be exploring advanced lighting setups. Combining a single Dynalite strobe head with a Photoflex silver P22 reflector and a $15.00 dollar mirror from Home Depot we can make a single strobe head look like several heads on set.

This is a look at advanced lighting with a single head. I hope you will find this advanced look at a single light setup helpful.

It’s important to remember that hard light from mirrors and silver reflectors becomes almost as powerful as the main light source and can create multiple light sources on set. A 15 dollar mirror from Home depot is a great investment.

You can modify them much like a regular light with flags and scrims and even diffusion. Keep those cameras rollin and keep on clickn’.

  1. i would not call this advanced but over the top light setup.most of the results were actually not that great at all.simplicity is the key but i guess you wanted to show what can be done by using this and that.nice trick with mirror

  2. JP you're the man! learned so much from your channel 🙂
    so many possibilities! now i now where i can get foamcard, mirror, lights.
    but wait…… where do i get talents like her? how come she's thaaat breathtaking beautiful!? amazing.

  3. Awesome video, who knew that using a mirror would bring such great results,
    Just want to confirm one thing, is it fair to assume that no flash was used here? I haven't noticed, so! only continuous lighting, right?
