One of the most uncommon lighting position for just a single light source is overhead. That is why most beginner photographers never even consider placing their light there. Unaware that it can create beautiful dramatic photographs just by asking your subject to face the light. As with all my videos, this is a Step by Step tutorial with a live view of my actual camera settings. I hope you guys enjoy!

My expertise is in manipulating ambient and artificial light to create clean and classic photographs which naturally led me to the genre of portrait and wedding photography. Since then, I have shot numerous weddings locally and overseas exhibiting my signature style.
