Today's shoot is with a new model discovery that is really amazing on camera. This is my second time shooting her in two weeks and I am certain she will go on to do amazing assignments in the very near future.
The image here is taken about an hour ago and is the unretouched image right out of my Sony A900 camera. The lens used to create this image is the 85 1.4 Carl Zeiss Planar lens. The lighting is simple and classic with a twist. Today's session is shot with the Profoto white beauty dish but we've added the lighting sock over the dish. Profoto sells a sock to go on top of your beauty dish but I've found it to be too thin. Speedotron makes a lighting sock as well, but their version is 3/4 of a stop vs the 1/4 stop sock that Profoto makes and gives a better quality of light.
To find the quality of light you like test your lights constantly making small adjustments until you find the look that suits your vision best. Today we are using two lights to give this effect but to really learn lighting you should always start with one first and master it before adding more lights.
Have a great weekend and always dream big!
