Beauty studio portrait

Beauty studio portrait

Portrait taken in the studio with the so called 'Butterfly Lighting' technique. The main light comes directly in front and above the model's face creating a butterfly shadow under the nose. In this image that shadow is softened using a reflection panel just below the model's face (you can see the reflection in the eyes). 

It is considered to be a flattering and adaptable pattern that lights most of the face while imparting a sense of depth. The technique is often used in fashion and beauty photography and every now and then I use it as well. 

More images with this technique can be found on the following pages:
