Portrait Photography Lighting – On Location

Portrait Photography Lighting – On Location

Leica M9 night portraits on location in Ukraine.


Any guesses as to my choice of light setup?

I’ll give you a clue.. it had to match the Leica M9 in terms of size and portable…

Keylight – street billboard
Rim light – Bike light placed on fence behind

Photography Courses & Lighting Workshops

If you want to learn how to light people with any light source join me at my Coventry UK studio where I offer 1-2-1 photography tuition and lighting workshops, specialising in portrait photography lighting

This shot was unplanned.. we met her mate in the street in Uzhgorod so I setup this quick portrait photo with what we had around us.

The Leica M9 does not excel at high ISOs so by doing night photography by avaliable light sources I could keep the ISO low.
