I love when I can manage to make a shot that’s just like the vision in my head, and this one gets pretty darn close. A few weeks ago I decided on the candle melting concept, which I developed to include the victorian theme. I chose my camera settings and the filter to help aid the sense of atmosphere and glow from the candles. I then set about creating the four light setup in @elixxiersoftware’s Set A Light 3D program.
The gridded key light focuses light on the face, hand, and front of the blouse. The 60” octa camera left provides some fill. The background light is positioned behind the candles to give the appearance of the flame hitting a wall. Finally, there is a light overhead to help create hair light and separation from the darker part of the backdrop.
