Low Key Rim Light

    Newer Older

    I've been wanting to try this for some time and finally did.
    YN460 @ 1/4 power in DIY softbox directly behind the black cup with black card to block direct light, leaving only the edges of the softbox lit. (radio triggered)

    Inspired by this shot.
    Thanks Randi

      I think you did a great job on this - and on the variations as well.

      It can be a very tricky shot to get just right and you got it!

      Great shot, explains very well how light draws lines better than a brush.
