One-light studio set-up can create serious drama

One of the fascinating and exciting things about discovering your way around a mini home studio is working on how to get a great light set-up when you have no wiggle room.

This has to be one of my favourite go- to one light set-up when I can't rely on my window light (i.e.: rain and clouds and/or short days)

All these shots were taken with a 60x90 cm soft box using a grid to channel the light.  The reflection in the glasses was left: I really like the pattern added by the grid and it's really only us photographers who understand where it comes from ;)

The colour image is SOOC  (straight out of the camera) no adjustments were made. All black and white images where post processed using only lightroom.
