Learn how Jeremey Barrett gets a soft light using a 22-inch beauty dish.
This chapter is from the book


JEREMEY BARRETT’S IMAGE titled “Soft” doesn’t actually use a soft box. So how does he get such a soft light? A 22-inch beauty dish, that’s how. Pop a decent beauty dish nice and close to your model and you’ll get that pretty, soft light, too. Jeremey then brings in three more strobes, each with a grid. By restricting the light with grids, Jeremey gets that sculpted edge along the model’s face as well as that circular glow on the background.
