Leivi's Talk Through

For this photo, I used 2 V1s that were placed on both sides of the Chuppa, which is a canopy used during Jewish wedding ceremonies. I had the V1s pointing towards the ceiling to bounce off and create an even light. Since the ceiling was white, it acted as a nice softbox.

For this photo, I used one AD200 Pro and placed it on the staircase, then angled it slightly downwards towards the couple. I used a 100cm Pro White Reflective Umbrella on the light to spread the light over the couple. This created a nice dramatic effect that captured the viewers' attention.

This photo was a lot trickier to capture. I used 3 AD200 Pros, one in the far left-hand corner and another one diagonally opposite it, both using bare bulbs. This shot would've also been possible using the AD100 Pros as well. Both of these lights were pointed towards the ceiling to create an even light. The final light that I had was behind one of the stands for the chuppa, to create a little bit of backlight if needed.
