Although nothing can beat the stunning results of a portrait done right in the light Mother Nature gave us, studio lighting is still fun to play around with. The dramatic look of a dark shoot can be intriguing. Place your subject in a tux and it can make for a rather suave looking photo. I shot these with an LED video light for fill and a speed light for my main source of light. Personally, I love the results.
