Comments November 18, 2017 Log in to Reply Antonio Rivera Hi Karl, I do like the light from the scrim better than the softbox. Next time would you please make the scrim light be the main instead of fill. Cheers, Antonio November 26, 2017 Log in to Reply Geoff Guthro I love the use of a collapsible back drop. I shall invest in one. I use the X drop system now and this would be even quicker. Just a collapsible and a stand. Great advice for a quick business portrait setup. I’ve done a business portrait shoot even simpler ( one light) in a dentist office lobby. The window was a large store front window with a frosted coating simulating a scrim. I bounced the one light to create the soft box simulation. I only did it though because the conditions were there to accommodate it so having options is a must, as those conditions don’t always exist.

February 11, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi Mahir, if the light is close enough then the reflections are minimal.

March 20, 2018 Log in to Reply john leigh great stuff I was interested to hear your comment about large pupil size as I am aware some photographers specifically aim for smallest pupils in the subjects eyes in order to show the largest area of colour – do you have any direction on this in your experience of clients expectations? March 21, 2018 Log in to Reply Karl Taylor Hi John, I don’t like the small pupil as it invokes the sense of being in bright outdoor light which will not look natural to the lighting you have created. Also anthropologists and sociologists agree that humans perceive a large pupil as a message of attraction. Comments You must be logged in to leave a comment.
