June 2021 // The Children Edition


You don’t need the best and most expensive equipment on the market to create great photography!

Here is a list of the gear I used: Camera: Nikon D750 Lens: 50mm Nikkor f/1.8 Lights: Flashpoint Xplor AD600 x 2 Modifiers/Reflector: • Glow EZ Lock 60” Octa (double diffused) • 7’Westcott Parabolic umbrella with white diffusion sock (white interior) • White V-flat

For the shot, I used the 60” octa as my main light on camera left and feathered it to create soft light without any hotspots. The 7’ parabolic umbrella was placed behind me slightly to the right to provide a subtle fill light to soften the shadows. I also used a white V-flat on camera right to bounce the light coming from the main octa, as you can see in the lighting diagram above. If the studio space had white walls nearby opposite the main light, I would not need the V-flat for bounce. Adjust your lights based on your shooting space.
