If you just got your first DSLR or if you’ve had one for awhile and want to get serious about taking better pictures, the advice in this article is for you.
When you use powerful lights behind a model’s head, several issues arise. One of those issues is that light passes through the subject’s earlobes. Luckily, there is a quick fix for that, and you don’t even need Photoshop to do it. It’s easy; all you need is some gaffer’s tape.
