  1. First class tutorial, really interesting and it gives the angelic look perfect technic for children’s

  2. Vey clever having one set of lights fire after the other during the same exposure to open up some creative possibilities! Would it have been possible to achieve a similar kind of look by quickly throwing the camera out of focus in-between the flashes?

    1. Hi Michael, it may have been but you would have needed long enough in-focus for the main exposure before changing focus.

      1. Thanks for the reply! Good point. I’ll try it on a smaller scale and with a static object and see how it turns out. Fantastic course by the way – it’s one thing seeing lighting diagrams of how a shot was constructed but the added value is seeing how you methodically problem solve as the shoot develops. Really helpful!

  3. On this shoot there was concern with the model moving and causing a dark edge and a transparent edge. Would that issue be mitigated by having the model wear a white full length dress that would be more flowing in nature that what the model wore?

    1. Hi Gary, if she moves then yes you are correct it will be a problem no matter what dress. But a small amount of movement and it will be almost imperceivable.
