Here’s another great shot from photographer Cecilie Harris. The beauty dish gives a bit harder light than a softbox. If you don’t want the light to be too hard, you can use a reflector to reduce some of the shadows.

Fashion lighting setup with two models

A window, a reflector, two models and ...voila!
Even when shooting two models, Cecilie knows how to do it with a minimum of lighting equipment.

Here is a stylish black and white fashion photo by photographer Cecilie Harris. The lighting setup is very simple using only a window and a reflector, yet the result is amazing. Very inspiring!
