The Daily Photo #16- January 16th, 2016.
Meet Tiffany, a photographer and videographer here in Columbus. She is full of positive energy, so I wanted some highlights and brighter tones in the picture, but I didn’t want high-key light. I wanted to keep some muted tones and color and maintain contrast against the white side of the background.
In front of a plain white wall, I used LP180 in a 24″ Promaster Softbox angled so it feathered off onto the wall to make a bit of a gradient behind her head. I used my second LP180 to brighten the wall on the left side. I aimed the flash at the wall, shooting through a diffusion disc from a 42″ 5-in-1 Promaster Reflector. I barely edged the light on to her face on the left side, giving the slight, soft highlights and muted light, with detail in the shadows.
