Types of lighting technique – Loop lighting

A light variation of the front lighting technique, loop lighting creates a small shadow of the subject’s nose on the side almost touching the cheek. However, keep in mind that the shadow does not actually touch the cheek. Loop lighting is very easy to create. Simply reposition the key light to an angle of 45 degrees and high above the subject’s head.
