On these shots I have used the Lastolite “Triflector” - the original version which is exclusive to The Flash Centre and highly recommended!
How the Triflector was used.
These shots were taken with a 70cm square softbox with the front diffuser removed. The light was placed in the “butterfly” position. The Triflector was used to reflect light into the shadows. This technique is very flattering as it has the effect of smoothing the skin and makes the eyes look great! You can also totally change the look of a portrait just by changing the background colour! Here the lighting hasn’t altered but we have a completely different look.
The Triflector gives a high
The Trireflector in use.
If you don’t like multiple
catchlights in the eyes - don't use the Triflector!
