Wanna try out a bunch of lighting setups, but don’t have an assistant to move the lights around for you? Only got a couple lights and you want to see what more would look light? Wish you could try out a ring light? Now you can do it virtually. Check out this brilliant website, http://www.zvork.fr/vls/ that allows you to add lights, move them around, adjust distance, height, strength, light type, gelled and see the results quickly before having to create the setups for real in the studio.
Check out this “Jill Greenberg-esque” setup I tried out. It was so fast to change light locations and light strengths to eliminate nasty shadows I didn’t want.
Once you’re done, you can save an image of the lighting diagram and the resulting portrait image.
