1. Split Lighting
Split lighting is a technique where the subject’s face is somewhat divided into equal halves (one appearing on the light and the other in the shadow).
2. Butterfly lighting
Butterfly lighting created a butterfly–like shadow just beneath the subject’s nose. The light source should be behind and above the camera when using this technique.
3. Loop lighting
Loop lighting is one of the most popular and is supposedly easy to achieve. This technique creates a loop-shaped shadow under the subject’s nose.
