Toujours deux

Earlier this week I did an evening photoshoot with Emilia Fridholm and her brother David Fridholm. We photographed in the green room, throughout the golden hour, and a bit past sunset.

David Fridholm. The sun through the window created a natural spotlight on the wall for David to use as a frame.

Emilia Fridholm, you can see that the light is a bit softer in these photos compared to the first two. We had placed a plastic sheet over the window to diffuse the light a bit.

David Fridholm. This is all done in camera, no photoshop needed to get that floating ball of light. Can you figure out how we did it?

One good thing with the mobile lights is that you directly see what you have to work with, whereas a speedlight you have to fire it to see where the shadows will fall.
