Fashion Shooting with Natural and Artificial Light

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)


FotoTV. could accompany Steve Thornton for an afternoon and had the opportunity to watch him do a photoshooting with model Swetlana Lobanova.

The fashion professional selected an old, dilapidated barn as location, which should give an optical contrast to the models clothing.

Lightingtechnically Steve limited himself to one flash, which is locked to a California Sunbounce Reflector.  Due to the reflector the illuminated area of the small flash is increased.  This results, in spite of a relatively small lightsource, a soft beautylight.

Apart from the flash, Steve relies on the sunlight of this warm summer afternoon and shows the possibilities given through the combination of flashlight and available light.
