Butterfly Lighting; Building the shot with the FlexFlash 200WFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday February 11, 2016 Equipment: Flexflash 200W Strobe 5-in-1 MultiDsc Reflector In my approach to shooting portraits, I almost always begin with the classic Hollywood-style butterfly lighting set-up.

By utilizing butterfly lighting as a starting point, I do not intimidate the subject with an array of lights, backdrops, c-stands, and other items. A new model walking…

I like to experiment off of established lighting setups, like Rembrandt lighting and Butterfly lighting, and then add my unique ingredients: creativity, technical…

Having used Photoflex gear for over twenty five years, I have always relied on their excellent build quality and performance. All soft boxes, umbrellas and reflectors are color correct for perfect color temperature and made with state-of-the-art fabrics and construction.

Photoflex was my first choice for light modifiers when I started building my own studio arsenal almost twenty years ago. I still have that first Medium Softbox, and use it often. Photoflex Octodomes produce wonderful light, and with a grid installed I find I can control almost any on-location lighting situation. Photoflex reflectors in my equipment case, too, have been with us the entire ride - doing their job as well as on Day One.
