came along to the courtyard also needing new, simple, clean images for his book. Another nice afternoon shooting in the summer sunshine - I could get used to this! Rather different lighting set-up for this shot compared with the one below of Geoffroy. I wanted a softer, less contrasty light, so out came the big diffuser panel. I love the control and simplicity it gives me as well as the beautiful soft light. You can create a pretty big, soft light source from a small flash by simply adjusting flash to diffuser distance.

I'll be going through diffuser panels as well as several other types of light modifiers in the workshop in August.
