July finds me off to see Amanda at Bliss Dance, Nuneaton, to shoot her students in a really fun afternoon session.
Due to the height of the studio it was necessary to swap one of the lights out from the standard Elinchrom BXRi to a Nikon Speedlight due to space allowances, but because it was a smaller shoot than normal running on batteries wasn’t an issue!
Another consequence of the reduced height at Bliss is that the white ceiling acts as a huge, delicious, beautiful fill reflector. I didn’t pin it down at first, but editing the Bliss photos they’re eaisly some of my favourites with respect to the fabulous wrapping light. As a lot of studios have much higher vaulted or flat ceilings I don’t get this effect anywhere else and need to work out a way to simulate it with a suspended reflector of some kind!
