Hard and Soft light; student examples

Here we  have a good example of hard light being used within this portrait. The fault with this image is the I.S.O has been set high and as a result we have a large amount of grain and noise. To combat this, we could instead have a large Aperture opening and a slower shutter speed. There also some smoothing filters in photoshop that could help in post production.

Here is a example of soft light being used to light a portrait. The light source is clearly a lot larger than the subject and connotes a sense of youth and innocence.
