I am trying to take some head-shots of my colleagues

Customer Question

I am trying to take some head-shots of my colleagues and when I shoot in portrait mode I am getting a strange little silhouette on one side of the subject. It doesn't seem to change much regardless of where I place the light source and it doesn't appear if I shoot from a landscape position.

Thanks. Eric

Hi Eric,In Portrait mode you may need to add in more fill light for the background. This could be a second light, reflector, or anything that will put additional light on the background.
