Boudoir Part 12 – Softbox and Fill

This is another shot of our stunning Model, Daniela. As you may recall from previous posts she has gone through an amazing transformation and has become our “Own Biggest Loser”. The effort and persistent that she has shown is be an inspiration to us all who want to Live Fit. We hardly recognize her, but, Wow! So proud. Kathleen has been having her ass kicked every morning, waking up at 4AM by this dude:!/profile.php?id=100001071686692  Kudos to K and M to keeping this going!

Now a bit about this shot. Black backdrop, and from the Catch Lights in the eyes, you can immediately see a large softbox 45 degrees left and a small fill umbrella 45 degrees right. Always look at the Model’s eyes and you will find the lighting! Cool. eh? Our set-up is simple and effective. Getting the exposure correct takes some practice, setting up the gear with wireless controllers and HD Monitor for Model Feedback is a chore, but getting the pose…that is the fun!

Happy Holidays, Kathleen and Erik

  2. This is an awesome shot. Thanks for the explanation. I am primarily a Landscape/Cityscape/Seascape photographer and have never really ventured in to studio work. I would like to learn and things like this are awesome! Thats how I started learning how to shoot in the first place, getting little tips here and there. Thanks a bunch. BTW, congrats to Daniela, looks like she was tremendously successful!
