Model & MUA: Chrissy Marie
Location: Miami Shores, FL
With this set from my shoot with Chrissy, I wanted a very natural-looking high key shot. And I was a bit pressed for time so I only lit this with two strobes.
Key Light: The strobe was book-lit into my 4’x6’ California Sunbounce through a 1/2 diffusion roll. I positioned it just off camera left and kept everything really low to the ground to limit the shadows on the side of her face closest to me.
Back Light: A strobe with a 10”x36” stripbox. It was just out of my shot, boomed over her on camera left.
To keep the high-key look I controlled the ambient light through the curtains with my shutter speed. I settled with 1/160 which just was just past the limit to retain detail in my highlights.
