White Lightning 1600X with 11″ reflector as key light in front of Natasha and a White Lightning 1600X with a 7″ reflector as a hair/background light.
Just started experimenting with two lights,I’m trying to emulate lighting I see on Model Mayhem and the fashion mags. It’s good practce to decipher lighting set-ups and CS4 on the images I see. I am really drawn to this hard lighting. It gives crisp shadows with deep blacks. The 5DM2 also produces smooth deep blacks like a film camera.
The 17-35mm is a tricky portrait lens, but can give pleasing results. The perspective can slim the model down when used carefully, and the CS4 liquify filter can correct any distortion.
