Portrait Beauty Shot | With a Foldable Stripbox

Portrait Beauty Shot | With a Foldable Stripbox


| By Flash
In this episode of ‘How To Create The Shot,’ our marketing manager Anthony Romano and videographer and lighting tech Kimberly Nail used two foldable strip boxes with grids to create a moody beauty portrait. See how they made some stunning shots using a two-light setup.

Foldable Stripbox With Grid

Strip boxes can be used for multiple purposes for hair lighting, and backlighting and are often used as a rim light to separate the subject from the background effectively. They work well for portrait photography.

First Setup:

Today I am going to show a basic portrait, with one Stripbox as the main light. We take several shots with the inside diffuser, without, and with the grid. Anthony shows it all.
