Beauty to Drama with One Lamp

This is an attempt to show that you don't need a ton of lights.

One light, the right type, in the right place tells a story.


"Beauty Lighting"

Very large umbrella over camera

"Beauty Lighting"

A harder look this time with a smaller beauty dish instead of an umbrella

"Normal Lighting"

I'd normally have changed to a Softbox for this position but it's the beauty dish as used in the previous shot

"Drama"

A 1Kw Fresnel replaces the soft source and moves further off the camera axis.
Flags chop top & bottom of the light.

There is a constant strip soft light as back light.
