“My favourite light is just straight­for­ward win­dow light”

1 WIN­DOW LIGHT/DAY­LIGHT With­out a doubt, my favourite light is just straight­for­ward win­dow light. i tend to adapt the light with re­flec­tors and dif­fusers to fill in shad­ows. There are dif­fer­ent qual­i­ties of light through­out the day, so find what suits you.

TRI-FLECTOR The use of the Tri-flector with a soft­box is by far the best style of light­ing in the stu­dio for me – it gives beau­ti­ful but­ter­fly-style light­ing, and you can also po­si­tion the pan­els to fill in shadow de­tail to an in­fi­nite de­gree when us­ing the unit as a 3/4 full-length re­flec­tor.

FLU­O­RES­CENT TUBES This gives a com­pletely dif­fer­ent qual­ity of light to work with. i use gels at­tached to the tubes and a high cam­era iso.

SOFT­BOX an­other favourite is us­ing a small Elinchrom Ro­talux 70cm deep soft­box placed high above the model. This gives bril­liant down­ward shad­ows giv­ing greater def­i­ni­tion to the hu­man form. adding a fill light con­trols the shad­ows.

PURE WHITE BACK­GROUND a def­i­nite go-to setup for me is the pure white back­ground. We have four lights, two ei­ther side, set at f16 and flagged off with large pan­els. The model stands just for­ward of the spread of light and the use of white pan­els fills in any front lights.
