How to Make a Profile Portrait

How to Make a Profile Portrait

For this picture, I used a flash directly and very close into the face. The black background was created by a very fast shutter speed and a far closed aperture.


  • The model’s eyes got to be closed other ways she is going to get blinded. which would not be very helpful.
  • The closer you get to the face the brighter will the front of the face be and the darker the back.

Camera settings:

  • Camera: Eos 1300D
  • Lens: 18-55mm kit
  • Shutter speed: 1/200
  • Aperture: f/22
  • Iso: 100
  • External Flashlight

Have fun recreating it 🙂 If you have any questions or opinions on it let it meknow in the comments.
