After a couple of years of producing tutorials, writer, producer, presenter, and photographer Kai Wong has met his fair share of professional photographers, and even a few modern legends. Through all of it, he has picked up on what it is that they all have in common, regardless of what types of subjects they shoot.
Shane Black and two of his good friends wondered the same thing. They all took the risk of leaving behind their jobs for two months this summer to explore the world beyond their day-to-day routines. Together they drove nearly 13,000 miles, stopping many times along the way.

In previous articles, we’ve discussed photo lighting patterns where we place the light source to the side of the subject–split lighting, loop lighting and Rembrandt lighting–and create shadows that go off to the side. Continuing with our series of portrait photography lighting patterns, today’s photo tip discusses “butterfly lighting”.
