Liz Ashley – Bedroom Set
Ideally, this could have been done easily in a real bedroom with large north facing window; where the soft daylight would cast a very even light across the subject. But I don’t have the luxury of time to move Ashley from the studio. So I improvised by bringing a duvet from home, spread it over white seamless paper; and voila! instant bedroom.
The light (inside a large softbox, emulating window) is place right next to Liz, to camera right, slightly angled down. To achieve the desired focus on eyes and bokeh, I dialed down the power to almost minimum. I chose to go with my trusty 85mm f/1.4D to create the smooth bokeh. I was able to reliably focus on the eye all the way down to f/2.2; which was good enough to get decent bokeh.
