Lighting Deconstructed: Paolo Roversi

ORIGINAL (LEFT) AND OUR VERSION (RIGHT)

Today on Deconstructing the Lighting, Dana Pennington and myself attempt to recreate a photo by one of my favorite photographers of all time, Paolo Roversi. This shot of Kate Moss is a tight beauty image and we wanted to really narrow down how exactly he lit this. We had a tough time figuring out the shadows on this shot, so watch on how we troubleshoot through this, using myself as a human flag to block off some of the light. A tricky image to deconstruct but we got trickier and I think Dana and I got fairly close!
