Hi! My name is Yuliana Chi, I am a beauty, fashion, fine art and portrait photographer. I've designed this course to show that portrait photography doesn't have to be complicated, and how easy it is to create different looks with one light. If you have a camera and a window or door, this course is for you! You will learn 5 different set up for your indoor portraits. Actually, more than 5. It has been designed for natural light, but you can easily substitute source of natural light with artificial and apply any set up for your photography. I'll show how simple and easy it is to manipulate and change light with reflectors to create beautiful portraits, as well as how to create DIY V-Flat, which you can use as reflector - a must-have for any studio! And of course, i'll take many pictures, so you can see right away the difference of each set and variety of ways to pose your subject, standing and sitting. I wanted to make this course simple, suitable for beginners, but it can be interesting for any level of photographers. Enjoy!

This is a short summary of the course as well as general recommendations and some useful suggestions which you may consider when taking portraits.
In this lesson I'll show you probably the most basic set up. The beauty of it, that it will fit practically with any type of portrait photography and it doesn't require any additional equipment. Also i'll talk about light intensity and the ways how you will be able to modify your window light with accessible and inexpensive tools.
In this lesson I'll show you the second probably most used light, which called Rembrandt light. You can use it without any additional reflectors as well as with negative and positive fill. We will look and compare all 3 variations so you can see how reflectors affect the shadows on the subject.
This is more creative set. In this lesson I'll show how you can lit your subject even if the light source behind. We will look at two variations of the set, one where i'll be using a background board to partially block the light to create hair light and the other where i'll use window as a background.
