Master Any Lighting Setup With The Help Of set.a.light 3D

Fashion Photography: Macro lens allows you to get extremely tight compositions

8/26/2017 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

This shot was all about beauty, opulence and gold. Fashion designer Lory Sun and Lindsay Adler have collaborated for the last couple of years and Lindsay wanted to feature some of her newest designs, including a gold metal glove.

Since these images were all about the beautiful detail on her designs, she utilized a 180mm macro lens paired with the Canon 5D Mark IV to get up close and personal in these shots.

In this shot I experimented with several different formulas of lighting until I found the setup that had the most pop and shine for her pieces. In some shots I tried three lights, sometimes I tried gels, other times I lit the background. In the end I utilized only 2 Profoto D1 Air strobes. I used a silver zoom reflector on her face to create contrast and shine to the pieces with a beauty dish and a grid that as fill light to periodically lighten the shadows or add extra shine to her pieces. - said Lindsay -
