7. It helps to shoot continuous with light when using pattern modifiers like a Venetian blind. What you see is what you get. I used a fabulous Lupo 800 Fresnel spotlight for this series of shots.

Chloe Jasmine Whichello, wow what a name
Your magical presence fills every frame
Your beauty is a wonder for all to behold
With your pure loving heart and wonderful soul

The range of possible shots using a simple bean bag are numerous. I do love relaxed close ups taken with my 100mm macro lens.

14. This shot shouldn’t exist. I created extreme silhouette conditions using a Bowens Gemini Pro 750 on full power aimed towards the camera and beyond Chloe. Instead of the f/22 setting recorded on Chloe’s back I shot at f/2.8 into the shadow. I teach delegates how to become a lighting alchemist in my studio sessions.

15 Lighting as above

Baby oil, baby oil, I thought it would shine
Bring a lustre to Chloe to sparkle for all time
It has soaked into the walls lapped up by the paint
Now my Ice Storm 2 background is far from quaint

    Hello, Damien I was wondering what lighting stands and light booms you would recommend for lights which weigh over 4kg like the Bowens pro 1000/1500w lights?

    Hi Damien. As usual perfect images. TIP: Try deep skin cleanser on the walls to get the baby oil off! You might be able to paint over the marks again then!

    Keep inspiring us all :-]

      Hi Iona,

      Haha, I managed the baby oil removal process with fairy liquid (kind to my hands apparently) on a sponge.

      Thanks for your comments, Damien

      Hi Suzie,
      You are a star pupil. You have every box ticked for success. It’s such fun having you on my workshops. And yes, the baby oil came off the walls!
      Best regards, Damien.
