After the studio move to Uppermill High Street, the dust was settling and I asked for a model to help me test out it’s lighting capabilities. The studio can now double up as a natural light and artificial lighting photography studio, with a high glide system in the ceiling.
The young lady that modelled for me was rehearsing for a ballet show and very happy to pose in her tutu and show me some dance moves. Natural light can be a beautiful way to photograph children, especially as it requires no setting up, except placing the model in the light and getting them to turn so the light falls on them, with soft shadows as desired. Reflectors can also be used to bounce light back into the shadows. Using artificial light, you have full control over how strong the light can be, how soft, and direct, and using one, two , three or even four lights, create the lighting that you are after. In the first image below, I’ve kept it very simple and used just one light with a bounce under and to the right of her. This allowed for drop off behind her and a light grey backdrop to appear dark.
