New Headshots & the Art of Negative Fill

I went down to visit my friend Chris Newhard in Philly to get some new headshots. He's worked with me on every major project I've done. He color graded Minimalism & was the director of photography on Design Disruptors.

In this video we talk about how to shape light with negative fill. When you're first starting out the tendency is to add light. As you get more advanced you change your approach to be more about controlling light. How can you block/reduce/direct light in a way that's most flattering for your subject? In a way that fits the mood you're looking to create?
