Ray Perez presents Albert Watson
What can I say; a lighting master. I am intrigued by the effect of his minimal, high contrast lighting techniques. The control of his directional lighting really isolates and defines the subject's form and shape. The close vicinity of the light produces a bright point light source which diminishes quickly, creating a soft edge. We tend not to place a raw light source that close to our subject, especially if it is a person.
I have had the pleasure of utilizing this unique lighting technique on both stills and people. I highly recommend the process and the knowledge you will gain from playing with a raw light source.
