    interesting… first time i’ve seen a photographer stress lighting the complete front of the face.
    Most emphasize lighting from one side or the other, unless it is beauty lighting. Short or broad lighting leave shadows on one side of the face, without the complete front of the face being lit. He has a nice look to his portraits, worth experimenting with,
