Neil van Niekerk is a New Jersey-based wedding photographer with years and years of experience in portrait photography. He knows all about the importance of lighting, what works and what doesn’t. He boils it down to this: good lighting is all about the quality and direction of light.
In this hour-plus long video, he goes into in-depth detail and has tons of information about working with light and, specifically, about how to use the quality and direction of light to your advantage.
It’s a long tutorial, but so worth watching!

We've seen how managing the ISO setting allows you to control the amount of grain that shows in your photos. But it does more than that. Understanding and working with the ISO setting gives us added flexibility in terms of setting the other two exposure settings–aperture and shutter speed.
The bottom line is that ISO is an important and useful tool, and one that you will want to be comfortable with if you are looking to take creative control of your exposure.
