Practice Makes Perfect


My daughter has been practicing her flexibility for years and has been working on this pose for months now. On Saturday, we went to the studio to take some shots and she was so excited to see her progress.

I had to shoot using a softbox and I chose to use the Profoto 1x3' RFi Softbox.


I set the light up at a 45 degree angle above her and had her face into the light. I shoot on a Canon 5D Mark IV with a Canon 100mm f/2.8 set at f/13 at 1/160s.

Thank you for checking out my post. I hope that you enjoyed it. If you liked it be sure to follow me for more photography. Thank you for your support, you are awesome!

nice capture.
is it a strip box?
why f/13?


It is a soft box that is strip shaped instead of being square. It focuses the light a little more. I used f/13 because I was using a strobe.


all my experience (it is fascinating how i still misspell experience) if with flashes and i tend to not go to high f stops so i don't have to be on 1/1, 1/2 power on it.
never had an opportunity to use strips, seen that is good for that side lightning, nice light with a bit of drama :)

wow.. I see hours and hours of practicing! She is amazing;)


Thank you. She was super excited.

Great shot and a very difficult pose. Well done to you both.
