Broad lighting is used for low-key portraits, and has the effect of making the model’s face appear wider, so use it with anyone who has a thin face. It also de-emphasises features such as a prominent nose, and can also help to mask wrinkles.

Butterfly lightingalso known as Paramount lighting, became a staple pattern for the Hollywood photographers of the 1930s. The butterfly pattern can be quite useful for a variety of faces, but is at its best on lean subjects with high and pronounced cheekbones.

Loop lightingwhich is named for the loop-shaped shadow that it creates under the nose, is the most frequently-used pattern. It is considered to be a relatively flattering and adaptable pattern that lights most of the face while imparting a sense of depth.

Rembrandt lighting is named after the famous Dutch painter of that name.   The lighting is similar to loop lighting, but with the light source moved higher and further left or right of the face.  It creates a strong pattern characterized by a small triangle of light that appears under the eye on the shadow side of the face, along with a nose shadow that nearly extends to the corner of the mouth.  This is not an all-purpose lighting and is probably best reserved for character studies and moody fashion work.

Split lighting, though not usually considered a general-purpose lighting, can be quite useful.  With split lighting, half of the face is lighted and the other half is in shadow.

The Wonderful Paintings of Christina Mrozik

Christina Mrozik has spent the majority of her life observing the natural world and the types of relationships that form within it. Having grown up on the Grand River in Michigan, she was inspired by it’s habitats at an early age. Blending the external world with her own understanding of the human condition has led to her distinct style, in which flora and fauna stand in, representing the simultaneous and often opposing matters of the human heart. She often draws with ink and marker on paper, adding bursts of color with watercolor and high pigmented acrylics. Christina is inspired by many of the early naturalists such as Audobon, but also by visual storytellers such as Rackham. She views the art making process as one of portraiture, in which analyzing the drawing helps make sense of peoples’ histories and abilities. Currently based in Grand Rapids Michigan, she has shown both regionally and nationally. Currently she is working on designs for Twinne in London, branding projects for Nice Collective and recently returned from Cabin Time: A Roaming Artist Residency in the Porcupine Mountains. She is making work every day in her studio in preparation for upcoming shows, and is excited to see what’s next.
