Lighting Test - High Key With Soft Edges

Creating A Dreamlike Quality

The soft, minimally directional lighting was created with one off-camera flash bounced in a white room. 

I opened the lens to its widest aperture to accentuate the dreamlike quality of the image. The subject was placed on a folded bedspread. With most of the bedspread out of focus, it looks like a cloud.

I'm hoping that the subject liked the photo. She didn't say anything about it, either way, but I'm fairly confident. When it comes to lighting, we don't toy around.

Camera: Sony a7R III
Lens:     Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
