Lighting yourself up for self portraits can be a lot of fun. You get to experiment, try different things, and if it looks silly, nobody ever has to see it. Or, perhaps looking silly is the whole point, in which case you should probably put it on Facebook. But trying to recreate certain looks and moods isn’t always that easy, especially if you’re not used to lighting yet.
This video from The Lighting Channel shows ten different ways to light yourself for a selfie, and the moods they suggest. And even if you don’t use the lighting on yourself, they can be great inspiration for using with other subjects on a shoot.
