Golden Lighting on Beautiful Model

Beautiful model Domini on studio set built in my daylight photo studio with low angle afternoon sunlight. The studio is located in a more than century old factory building.

The set was made for a series of images with an artist painted muslin backdrop, reclaimed wood flooring and a vintage factory pallet jack. All of the tones and texture compliment the golden afternoon light that fills the windows.

The series of images was created with 3 different lighting approaches. Here the highly contrasting direct light hits the model with the casting a pattern of lines from the industrial windows. Other images were captured with the beam of window light hitting the model was diffused with silk scrim. The third look combined direct light on the model with the shadows softened by indirect fill light from a strobe bouncing off ceiling.
