At first I wasn’t even sure whether I’d tag this under Project L, as the style was so different; so much light, little to no bokeh and – gasp – mostly in colour (besides the first photo which is everything like that)! This is due to new members of the family, Elinchrom D-Lite 4 IT and RX. With softboxes.

I have always felt that umbrellas do not really show off latex’s shine as they should, but instead show a round blob in the reflection. Softboxes, in the other hand, are a god’s gift to photographers. Sure, they are usually bloody annoying and slow to set up compared to umbrellas, but I feel that the plain, flat surface of light is much better.

If it weren’t for the model, this photoshoot would’ve been published as a plain “woo I’ve got new lightening equipment, look how the latex shines!”. But she was so natural and plain herself in the outfit, even with the heavy-breathing Brittish S-10 gas mask. It seemed that it was her natural state. And that’s what Project L is about. Life as it is, casual with a taste of shine in it. And no doubt, I will be working with her again.

I’ve also planned the next photoshoot to be held during the next weekend. Woo! I’m an active blogger! Ish.
