I wanted to test out an idea I had of shooting an Alien Bee through a porch shade, behind the “subject”. I am using a 60″ Photek SoftliterII directly above the “subject”. It’s new to the studio and I’m liking it’s bigness and softness. I have a gridded flash unit hitting the top of the “subject’s” head – providing some edginess. A large white foamcore board reflects enough light to barely see the “subject’s” eye(s). Great expression on the “subject’s” face.
