Ex pert insight It’s not roc ket sci enc e – Light is light !
Dave says… As long as you’ve got the light under control so that it does what you want it do, it doesn’t matter how you did it! For this photo of our last model, we needed a tightly focused light so I improvised this ‘snoot’ from a cardboard tripod box, then aimed it carefully at Paul’s face. Don’t try this with lights that run hot or have modelling lamps! I could only do it because our Profoto lights run cold.
