Mix your light­ing

We can try sup­ple­ment­ing the UV lights with other ‘nor­mal’ flashes or lamps. Here we found that a sin­gle spot light on the back­drop gave us ex­tra depth and sep­a­ra­tion with the sub­ject. We used the modelling light from a stu­dio strobe, fit­ted with a hon­ey­comb grid to re­strict the spread, and cov­ered it with an or­ange gel. We need to make sure it’s not too bright, it has to bal­ance out with the low-out­put UV lights. You can see how it gives us an or­ange glow to the back­drop that helps to add depth to the frame and out­lines the shape of the face.

kit needed: Lamp with hon­ey­comb grid and or­ange gel Ex­po­sure: 1/125 sec, f/2.8, ISO1250
