AFTERNOON LIGHT AT 11PM - studiomakishima

As you may know from other blog posts I have written I shoot a lot for hair salons.  Ideally my client wanted the light to look like early morning to late afternoon sunlight.  My solution to this problem was simply to put a 30 degree grid on a strobe use that as my key light and then filled in the rest with a  white parabolic umbrella tented in what is referred to as Japanese lantern lighting which is a soft non-directional light.  It was quite windy that night which in a  way was nice.  So did I pull it off?  Well you can be the judge of that but the client was happy so I am happy.
