Here’s a little trick I learned from David Hobby when it comes to adding texture to your light. I played around with it a little this week and you can see what I came up with. I had a plain white wall to work on and so I used an SB28 with a pink gel and fired it through a water glass from my kitchen. I lit Abbi with my homemade 1/2″ grid spot. (Another little trick I picked up from David.) Click the image for a larger view.
You can use a lot of interesting things to fire your flash through to make your light look cool and interesting. Could you imagine how boring it would have looked if I would have just fired the flash onto the plain wall? It would have been more interesting than a white wall, but still… you get the idea.
Try it out for yourself and see what you can create. Post your comments with links to your shots!
