Experimental Shoots: Backlighting
This is a simple setup, a rectangular softbox behind the model. I decided to go for a see-through top as I thought that would be more interesting than straight nude.
What I did discover was that a not quite rectangular light (it bows) was very distracting and need straightening out in post.
The model is the wonderful dancer Julie Waterhouse.

In this series I am focussing on different kinds of setups I've tried. Some are more successful than others. The idea is tweak your creative juices. I'm going to give a few tips as we go, but not full details - I want your experiments to be your own - you will have different ideas, equipment, setups and so on.
I am always interested in the results, and if you want to post them to me I would be very happy to put them on the blog.
