Christopher Grey: The Two-Softbox Key

In the fourth installment of this ongoing series, photographer and lighting master Christopher Grey takes us through a simple, yet effective, lighting setup he calls “the two-softbox key.”

In this portrait set-up, Christopher explains how to use two softboxes to act as both the key and main lights, while still looking like just one source. This creates a flattering, soft light to make anyone look amazing but, he notes, is especially nice with “more mature clients… because it tends to wrap around those badges of age, wrinkles.”

With a few subtle variations, this lighting set-up can be used to create a variety of effects so when you start shooting, don’t hesitate to experiment!
