We had the opportunity to shoot in studio the other day. Taking some time to consider how I was going to use one light was important. When you have one light, you can achieve many looks. I wanted something that said grace and showed her hair, whole still providing beauty and drama. To that end I chose to shoot the short light side and use a tall soft box. I would have even gone for a full frame since her dress was great, but I would prefer to use a bit more light in that case.
As shot I could have used a hair light or even a reflector to get some light into the back side of the dress, to bring out more detail. As it is I love the soft, yet dramatic look of the shot.
