Thanx for the additional BTS shots!

Yes it looked like Manfrotto 131dbb Repro arm, i have two of them and often use them for overhead shots.

To somewhat mimic the window light with one strobe, what would you first choice of modifier be ?

I'v been using medium octa and a scrim, but recently been using a 150cm indirect octa which i find to be quite good on it's own.

Nothing fancy. A Chimera 3'X4' with a silver interior. It does an adequate job. We usually use it for the last hour or so as the sun sets pretty early on these winter days.


My answer for most photography questions: "it depends...'

I don't have much natural light through my window. I'm try to mimic with one strobe light, D-Lite 400W/s RX 4 Flash Head. Rotalux Softbox Octa 53" and a silver reflector.

My breakfast.

Nice hung V, seems like quite a breakfast! :-)

I find my self using different setups depending on what kind of "window" light i want to mimic.

For indirect sunlight coming thru a window a single larger modifier often works quite well.

Mimic direct sunlight (backlit) thru a window often requires a bit more in terms of light/modifiers.
