Christopher Grey on Rembrandt Lighting

The third article by Christopher Grey has been published on the Sekonic site. Entitled “Rembrandt Lighting,” this installment of this ongoing series focuses on how to mimic gentle natural light Rembrandt experienced from the skylight in the small room where he created his portraits.

Because of the size and height of the skylight, Rembrandt’s portraits have heavy shadows, and Grey explores recreating this look in contemporary photographic portraits. Many subtle variations are presented which you can follow. Not only will you get a new set of skills in your portraiture knowledge, but you’ll learn why Rembrandt is considered a master.
