Using the Continuous Light and Barndoors for Portraiture
Top Pro portrait photographer Jim Schmelzer discusses essential ways of shaping the Ice Light's output with the Ice Light Barndoors. Jim creates a 4 Ice Light setup, using 2 rim lights, a fill light, and a key light. ( Dear readers, I know... $600x4!!!!)
