Shallow Depth of Field Portraits Using High-Speed Sync | Eli Infante

BUTTERFLY LIGHT

If you’re looking for a flawless setup, go with butterfly lighting. When I find myself in a situation where I need to shoot quickly, this setup never fails. I recommend using a PhotoFlex LiteReach Plus boom for your assistant for better mobility. The boom allows your assistant to place the strobe directly above the subject, angled down for a beautiful, even spread of light. I love this setup for clients because it requires less direction when posing due to the even spread of light.
