I wanted to experiment with two studio set ups but maintaining the same overall atmosphere of the original image. The top one is taken with a close and up Beauty dish, just off camera right.
The rapid fall off is obtained by adding a grid and a diffuser. The second one uses a ring flash
as front fill light. The differences (softer light the first, punchier the second) are highlighted in post.
The model: up and coming actress Mariel Neto. Make up and styling Tiffany Parente Connors.
