It’s more of the one-light setups for me again with Isabel.
I experimented on a mixed lighting scenario for her. We did some strobework, and boosted ambient lighting as you see in the sets that follow.
The last four (4) images is taken from the same set. The lights in the make-up table at the studio were pretty strong, and I thought of using this as a backdrop for a contrived “behind-the-scenes” shot. I used a strobe placed camera right behind Isabel giving that highlight on her shoulder, at the same time using its bounce to work as my main light. This kind of lighting gives a drama in an image, accenting the highlights. Based from experience though, this only works in on-location scenes, and not in straight up studio shot. I use this technique alot in Men’s Health shoots.
The last image though was a happy accident. It was a test shot where the flash didn’t fire at all. In hindsight, I personally found it better than the actual shots for the layout.
