Flash paint your glamour photo

It’s the third Thursday of the month again and I feel like sharing a one light setup with you, which I think is real fun. You pose your model simply on the floor or leaning at a wall and you fire your speedlight a couple of times from various positions while your camera shutter stays open for a couple of seconds. This technique is called flash painting. It’s seldom used for glamour photos, but for my taste the results are looking pretty hot.



The lighting is looking somewhat like this:


1. Model

2. Speedlight Mitros+, 1/32 power, Rogue Grid

3. 5D MK III, ISO320, f/11, 10s
