Details for Lucy's Magazine Aug, 2017 by ryan bater

One light beauty setup


Photographed earlier this year in our Prague studio, 'Details' is published in the August print issue of Lucy's Magazine over 6 pages. Focusing on natural skin tones, with a hint of vibrant colours & details throughout. Modelled by the beautiful Sandra Jančíková @ Elite Models, makeup by Tereza Visage using 100% vegan cosmetics.  


We wanted to challenge ourselves, and use a really simple affordable lighting setup for once. Easy to fit in your hand luggage, and great if your on a budget. For this setup we used the Godox Soft Octobox in 120cm, shot against a black material background (£5.00) from a local fabric store. We were super impressed with the diffusion of light, perfect for a simple portrait & beauty setup! We had the modifier placed around 1.2 metres from Sandra. We used a standard Sony flashgun for our light source, and a silver sided reflector on the black table directly below her for those all important catchlights!


Below are some fun out takes:
