Every now and then you’ll get a model who has perfect cheekbones for “Rembrandt” lighting. The legend is that Rembrandt had a studio with a small window high up above where he would pose people. The light would come down and illuminate their faces with a signature triangle of light on the cheek, just under the eye. This lighting style doesn’t work on everyone, but if you have a model with the cheekbones for it, it can be really amazing. Melissa definitely has the cheekbones for it. As soon as I saw her I knew she had to have this kind of classic light. I love it when a plan comes together.
