For the ethereal look that he wanted for this portfolio piece (shot on location rather than in a studio), Nathan Schroder let indirect sunlight pour through the windowed door behind his model (A) and wash over her. Unfortunately, the flare produced by the unmodified backlight was too strong and washed out her facial features almost completely. To bring back some of the missing detail, Schroder set up Profoto Pro-7a 2400-Watt-second power pack (B), mounted a zoom reflector (C) on his strobe head, and bounced its light off the wall opposite the model (D). He shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II (E) and 50mm f/1.4 Canon EF lens. Later, in Adobe Photoshop CS5, the photographer touched up the skin slightly and then "to accentuate the flare and add a color cast," he says, "I placed a lens flare filter layer on top of the image, along with a pink-to-purple gradient layer.'' The result is a nice balance of flare and flair.
