Strip Lighting Lesson

In this video tutorial photographer Scott Smith explains and shows how he uses strip soft box for shooting in black&wite and color.

The strip soft box beams quite narrow light at the model and therefore you have to always watch carefully if her/his head is lighted.

Scott uses black background in order to emphasize the light coming from the strip box, as black eats all the light that reaches the background and does not reflect it.

His camera settings are 1/250, f8 and ISO 100.

The strip soft box he is using has the lamp reflected from the box, unlike most other models which have the lamp pointing to the subject. It gives even softer effect.

The light from a narrow soft box looks very dramatic and you can achieve great results with your model using this equipment.
