Split Face Lighting

If you are looking for ways to have fun with your selfies, you have a few options to experiment, particularly different styles of lighting and angles.

Split light portraits are photos where light primarily illuminates one side of your face, where there is a shadow on the other side.  Positioning the light source slightly above your face helps to avoid any unflattering shadows.

You can try this If you move the light source almost at a 90-degree angle, eighter right or left to your face, you will get a split light. There, the light will illuminate one side of your face, highlighting it and cast a complete shadow on the other side of your face. This can give more of a dramatic lighting effect.  Tilting the camera slightly is great to make your photo unique because it makes it stand out from other photos. It seems like It draws your attention to it if you’re just glancing by.
