Butterfly lighting

A lighting technique that is flattering when used with most portrait subjects. It is called Butterfly lighting because of the distinctive butterfly shaped shadow that is present under the subject s nose from the placement of the light(s). The main light is placed above and in the same direction the subject is facing and so produces even, soft light.
