and a red hair light. And loads of negative fill. And a wonderful make up artist and a great model

Been working hard on the beauty shots recently

Below is a shot of the studio equipment we had. I built a 6x6 light and a ring light for this shoot and hardly used them.

Tell me what you think!

thanks

It is really very good and I like the combination of hard and soft light.
Though I'm not sure whether I would have put the hot spot on her nose, maybe on an eye. Do you have anything a little bit wider? I think there is more of a challenge in mid and wide beauty shots than close ups.

I was thinking something similar to Daniel. I wonder what it would look like if the spot were centered half between an eye and the tip of her nose.

Either way, it's a beautiful way to light her. Like the last time, compliment the makeup artist.

I need to figure out a good "kirk light"

Any ideas?

This is the light effect I got on the nose but needs a wider shape and softer edges

thanks

I Actually like the light hitting the nose. because it's such a big close up it creates a strong tension with the eyes which is more dramatic and less cheesy or predictable than just hitting the eyes.

I do think a softer shadow would have been nicer.

very nice .

Perhaps you can try the flashlight with some diff on the front. You can cut a hole out of the diff to whatever shape and size you want?
