Here is another lighting example for you.
A very nice lady with an amazing traditional dress (which I am told took a year to make, which does not surprise me):
So how was that lit?
- First, I exposed properly for ambient light. That is why the background foliage looks good.
- The camera, of course, is on manual.
- Then, I added a main light on my right – a strobe in a softbox. This again gives us nice soft light. Fired by pocketwizards.
- Then finally, I felt it needed more. So I used a speedlight in the sink, on manual, fired also by pocketwizards.
That’s how. Try some of the same if you have time!
