Portrait Beauty Shot | With a Foldable Stripbox
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.
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.
Behind the scenes
The next challenge is with two strip boxes, which he will do together with a professional lighting technician Kimberly Nail has a lot of experience with this setup.
