Karli Black Dress Setup

Newer Older

Strobist Information:

For these pictures I was shooting Karli on a white seamless paper background illuminated with two Elinchrom D-lite 4 studio flash heads. I also had three SB-28's, one hand held as a hair / rim light and two shooting though translucent umbrellas as a main and fill light, all triggered by PW's. For some of the pictures we also used a room fan to get some movement in Karli's hair and flowing skirt.

    Thanks for including all the notes on this setup. It really helps to understand how the setup worked.

    The photos are wonderful, and the model is easy on the eyes.
