Taking a 180 degrees turn from our color-bursting portrait, here is a very soft black and white portrait and how to build a great setup for it.
In this setup, a parabolic umbrella forms the base. The light is very defined and creates highly visible highlights.
A second open Octabox brightens the shadows created by the model’s pose and brings some light into the shadow areas.
Using an infinity cove (a.k.a. cyclorama), with its gentle curvature, ensures a smooth transition between floor and wall.
The individual light sources
If you’ve never worked with Set.a.Light before, you should give it a try! There is also a free demo version on the website, which you can use to open our project file
