01 Reflections

At the right an­gle, wa­ter in front of your sub­ject can cre­ate a beau­ti­ful re­flec­tion that mir­rors the edge of the body. A shal­low, dark tray with an inch of wa­ter is all that’s needed. Gen­tly dis­turb the sur­face of the wa­ter for a rip­pled ef­fect.

02 High-key back­light­ing

For this high-key, sil­hou­et­ted look, use a white back­ground. Po­si­tion the lights be­hind the model, pointed at the back­ground to blow it out. An­gle the soft­boxes slightly in­wards to cre­ate a spill of light that gen­tly lifts the edges of the sub­ject.

03 Low-key edge-light­ing

For clas­sic edge-light­ing, keep frontal il­lu­mi­na­tion to a min­i­mum. With a soft­box di­rectly to the left and right of the model and slightly be­hind her, you can cre­ate bright high­lights along the edges of the body.
