Shooting with continuous light is a great, simple way to learn lighting as what you see is what you get. And the great thing about Elinchrom studio flashes is that they come with high q quality, controllable modelling bulbs that can be left on and used as an alternative light source to the flash itself. When it comes to shooting Boudoir, this makes positioning the light and setting the power quick, simple and easy, so watch as mark demonstrates how to shoot great Boudoir images in this hotel room scenario. He combines direct and bounced light to shoot moody and sensual images of the model, creating great variety in this small space.
