Hollywood Lighting is a lighting style reminiscent of the pictures of Hollywood Movie Stars of the 20's, 30's, 40's, & 50's. During that era, before studio flash systems, the same high power lights that were used to light the Hollywood sets were also used to photograph the stars. Stars like Veronica Lake, Louise Brooks and Grace Kelly. Photographs taken in this lighting style have a distinct look characterized by a high contrast and a sharp crisp edge. A look reflecting the glamour of the subject and the era.

Photos taken in this style are often slightly over exposed to allow the light to bleach out imperfections creating a smoother look in the portraits and often blurring the lines between the subject and high key backgrounds. The high contrast of these pictures taken in this style lends itself to black and white images as well as sepia toning and other manipulations that require a sharply defined line between lights and darks.
