A blog about the life of a photographer who happens to be named Diana.

Inside the lighting behind the night shoot with model Trevor Himes looking all mysterious and cinematic.

Trevor was standing in front of a fence and I wanted to give him an edge light so I placed a Mole Studio 2K with CTB gel about 15 ft directly behind him.

To the right of Trevor, I have a small light stand with strobe head with no diffusion.  Then I have a photo assistant just standing barely camera right holding a bounce card in front of Trevor that bounces the strobe to give fill in on Trevor’s face and hand.

Then have a fog machine on for a few seconds and voila! You have illuminated soft billowly light everywhere!

Camera: Canon 5D MKII with 85mm lens.  Shot at 1/100 at f/1.4, 1000 ISO
