To create this captivating portrait, the photographer used the Siros 800S monolight and Para 133 reflector, with the Para placed off to the subject’s right side and the focusing tube in the middle position. These light-shaping tools allowed for the capture of soft and hard light simultaneously, with fast flash durations for freezing the movement of the subject’s hair.
The portrait was shot with a medium-format camera at a 58mm focal length. Exposure was 1/125 sec., with an aperture of ƒ/16.
