One Light Shot

unbenannte Fotosession-0019-Bearbeitet

This is a one light setup, a very classical posing, the kind of pictures that used to be done at the beginning of the XX century. Nothing complicated or especially fancy. I used a softbox 45cm x 45cm aiming down at her at a 45° angle. The so called paramount or Butterfly lighting because the shadow just below the nose.

It’s very hard to say what makes a good shot or not in such a case : the light setup has been done hundreds of times, the posing also. At the end of day it’s the addition of those little things that create the emotion. And here, it all comes down to her eyes.
