Creating Stunning Portraits With Rotolight AEOS and NEO2

The good folk at Rotolight lent us two pieces of kit for this demo: the Rotolight AEOS and the NEO 2. These lights were originally designed for video work, but Rotolight have added a strobe feature that means they can be used like studio flash lights or location strobes (off-camera flash). They are extremely lightweight, very portable and their battery goes on as long as you can.

We had a lot of fun putting them through their paces!

Don’t worry if you are using alternative strobes or continuous lighting.

The ideas and concepts in this video apply to any artificial light source. So whether you’ve got traditional strobes, LED lights or any other means of electronic illumination, you find new ideas here. And if you’re deciding what to invest in, the kit introduction chapter in this class gives you a great overview of the pros and cons of the Rotolight hardware.

Our models for this class are two sisters, so you’ll also pick up some posing ideas for pictures of women on their own and together.

This video is ideal for beginner and intermediate photographers with an interest in flashlit portraits, location lighting portraiture and sibling posing.

We’ll finish off with some words of encouragement before it’s over to you to put your new skills into practice!

Enjoy – and don’t miss the outtakes at the very end! 🙂
