I’ve often talked and written about the value of overexposure as a creative tool. While it’s true that it’s hard to control and,generally speaking, cannot be undone, when it’s planned out the effect is terrific. With a little extra Photoshop work, the effect is nothing short of superlative.I began by setting my largest softbox, a 6x7 Lastolite HiLite, directly behind where my model would be placed. A large, traditional, softbox such as a 4x6 could also be used in much the same way. The way this is set up, a medium 3x4 or 3x5 box could also be used, although the smaller box would limit the space available for movement.
