In this photography class, Karl and Urs try something slightly unusual. Going against common lighting conventions they make use of a low level light source to create this final image.
Lighting from below is traditionally avoided as it causes unflattering shadows. However, Karl and Urs find a creative way around this as they use four carefully positioned and well-thought-out studio lights with simple modifiers to achieve this shot. Watch as they make some final adjustments and discuss the setup, explaining why and how it works and how it could be adapted for a small studio before they finally reach the beautiful end result.
