Check out how a light and portable setup with one umbrella and strip box can translate to beautiful results.
I had to be flexible with our composition and placement of us in the frame. Time was of the essence and readjusting the lights and changing power settings was not an option. That's why the exposure had to be consistent across the frame...
I recently won the prestigious 2017 APA Award in the Student/Emerging category. This was such a surprise to me and an incredible honor to be recognized alongside so many great photographers. Because of this award, I decided to create a breakdown of how I made the winning photograph.
The goal for this series was to create a rich soft natural light to contrast with the lighter tones in the dress. The tapestry backdrop had to have similar tones but create the contrast we wanted.
With the series appropriately titled "Enchanted", Nicole shows us how she got that timeless and soft look with these images.
This was a 3 light set up, Key light was a Profoto D2 in a Profoto 3 foot octo camera left, rim light was a Profoto B1X in a Large Profoto deep white umbrella with diffusion on camera left, and fill was a Profoto B1X in a 6x6' scrim directly behind me.
