Cottage Portraits-1

My friend was very kind and co-operative to model for me while I experimented with a bunch of lighting setups up at the cottage.


The lighting in this one was an attempt to create a natural looking light with strobes. This is 100% strobe lit:

- Elinchrom Ranger A Head bare bulb in the room adjacent to the model. This was pointed towards the far wall and ceiling of the adjacent room, allowing the light to fill the room and spill through the doorway into the kitchen and onto the model.

- White reflector just to camera left filling in the shadow side.

- A white sheet on the counter immediately beneath the model, for just a bit of subtle under-fill.

- Triggered via Skyports.
