| p.1 #14 · Just bought Elinchrom 39" Deep Octa and 53 Octa |
That bridal shot was ok, the shadow of the bouquet is somewhat huge on her and the shadow on the right of her forehead is a little unnatural. The church told me I have 10min since the next couple's wedding is starting in 20min. I scrambled to set up the stand, the monolight, and the 53" Octa. The octa wasn't gridded, both diffusers were used though. Unfortunately the time was that tight that I didn't even have time to take one shot of the setup. The octa was about 8' away from the bride and 7' from the ground. If it's gridded, there would be less spill on the pews on the left, it probably wouldn't affect the shadow on her face too much.
I received the 50 degree grid from Lighttools not too long ago, so I don't have too many samples/comparisons to share. With the stretch frame for the DO, total $488, it's quite an investment but I think it's worth the price. The cost of the 53" grid makes me faint, and it will take forever to set up in the field. You can see what the grid looks like mounted on the DO. Although I am considering to return it for the 40 degree. Here's one from a recent shoot with the DO, 50 degree grid and both diffusers.
