Adorama Photography TV presents Exploring Photography with Mark Wallace. In this episode, Mark tackles the problem of trying to get shallow depth of field with studio strobes.
When shooting with a strobe, you can only turn the power so low, and sometimes that isn't low enough. To combat this, Mark simply uses the modeling light as a continuous light. This allows him to open the aperture to something like 1.8 or 1.2 to get extremely shallow depth of field and some stunning portraits. But how do you keep your portrait subject in focus when there's such shallow depth? In this exclusive AdoramaTV video, Mark shares his continuous light studio photography technique.
