In this episode I will be working with model Shannon Purdy as part of our My Nude Year project. We will be utilizing a softbox for this shoot and a one light setup with a simple pose on a wooden chair. We decided to use a softbox today so we would have a little more control of the sight sorce. The softbox limits the amount of light produced when compared to a shoot-thru umbrella. It allows for more shadows and contrast in the photo. Notice how soft the lighting is on Shannon’s nude figure but in contrast you still have some shadow areas with give a nice feel to this image.
Until next time,
