In this photoshoot, the focus is more on creativity than on technique. I was inspired by a fabric that I had found and started experimenting with it. I used a fan to bring some movement into the fabric, which gives a cool effect.

For my main light, I use our new Link800 flash with a Silver 24" Octa foldable softbox with a grid. The grid allows for better control of the light distribution and adds contrast and drama to the image. For my background light, I use this together with a standard reflector, grid, and colour Domes.
