Sample text

The wraparound effect of the larger light source, combined with the fill light from the cards, creates a beautifully soft light with a hint of a shadow falling from Serena’s nose. We continue to see the differences between using a large white card (left) and large silver card (right) reflector. The white is not quite as specular as the silver. Equipment and Lighting Styles 31 Butterfly Lighting The term “butterfly lighting” refers to the shadow pattern created by your subject’s nose when a light is placed directly in front of him or her and at a higher angle.

We also had a decrease in the exposure value, so we had to compensate by changing the power of the strobe. So, we got back to an exposure of f/8 at 1/125 second, but it is not the same as it was in the first image in this series. As shown in the diagram on the previous page, the light, pulled back twice as far as it was in its original position, is now providing an exposure of f/8 over an area four times as great as in the first image. The actual distance between Flora and the wall did not change, but the distance from the wall to the light increased.

Some umbrellas are designed for you to shoot the light through the fabric rather than bounce the light off of the surface. Umbrellas are frequently used light modifiers and are extremely easy to set up and tear down. Sometimes one reflector is not enough to create the image you want. We set up a large silver card to Tracy’s left to catch light from the umbrella to fill in the shadows created by a moderately harsh light source. It was not enough! Reflectors can save your shot on location too. Central Oahu boasts some stunning views of the Koolau Mountain range.
