Portrait Photography 101: What Is Rembrandt Lighting?

This week I’ve got model Nia Assata (@lakemerrittgoddess) with me as we discuss the awesomeness of one of the most famous lighting techniques, Rembrandt Lighting.

Rembrandt lighting is a well-known lighting setup that is most commonly used in used for portrait photography. To achieve this ‘look’ one half of the models face will be in full illumination whilst the other half, usually the side furthest away from the camera is in partial shadow, with a very distinct illuminated triangle under the eye on the shadowed side.
