Portraits: Get shallow depth of field with studio strobes using the modeling light as a continuous light

8/22/2012 ISO 1200 Magazine 1 Comments



Adorama Photography TV presents Exploring Photography with Mark Wallace. In this episode, Mark tackles the problem of trying to get shallow depth of field with studio strobes.

When shooting with a strobe, you can only turn the power so low, and sometimes that isn't low enough. To combat this, Mark simply uses the modeling light as a continuous light. This allows him to open the aperture to something like 1.8 or 1.2 to get extremely shallow depth of field and some stunning portraits.
