A simple trick for you today.
How do you create a magic bowl like this?
Simple technology, of course – you knew that, or I would not have mentioned it here.
- Use studio lighting with a key and fill light.
- Use a darker background – or move the subject away from a lighter background, to also make it darker.
- Then light the background with a flash with a gel – I used a speedlight (as it befits the speedlighter), with a Honl Photo “egg yolk yellow” gel.
That looks like this:
See the flash behind the bowl, aimed up? Simple, innit – once you know?
