I was very moved by the lighting, movement and beauty of this session.
Sue you explain everything so well! Thank you.
How big are modifiers?
Near the end of the Photoshop Edit, Sue states that you can achieve this look with either an x-tra large umbrella with diffusion, or with a 5 ft. octabox with a double diffuser. Earlier in the editing video she did say she changed from the large umbrella to the octabox with double diffusion and liked it better.
Do you do any editing in Lightroom or only Photoshop?
Nevermind, I rewatched the video and heard your statement about not using Lr. Sorry
Hi Sue! I LOVED this video! What type/brand of C-stand is that, with the arm?
So is this look possible using speedlights?
Of coure, just need a big umbrella/softbox/octobox
I’d love to know more specifics about the camera and light settings:
Power setting for overhead light?
Power setting for bounced light?
I watched the two strobe video also but Sue is achieving a very different look here.
Thanks in advance!
I am also quite curious… metering higher on overhead?
I’m so late to this party but OMG this session was gorgeous!! I want to have some tulle like this in the studio and was curious is it a strip that is multiple yards long or is it straight off the bolt and a few yards long?
I SO want to photography Anita! …………Anita come to Vancouver!!
Wow. Gorgeous session. The model took direction so well and the reveal was touching. Inspirational!
Am I correct in assuming that the camera right v-flat is on a 45deg to the model? I tried to replicate this and found it still looked too “flashy”. I also wondered about the diffusion on the main umbrella… is there more diffusion on the half closest to the model?
That was allllll right! Wow, reminded me of something right out of the musical Les Miserables. Love how she “flows” through the images. Thanks for this!
I could watch this a hundred times…so incredibly beautiful!
what a beautiful subject and an amazing photographer and teacher. Oh to be Sue Bryce good. Just absolutely gorgeous and that treasure chest of photos <3!
This one is breathtaking
I think this was incredible. My bucket list now includes a portrait session with Sue Bryce.
This shoot is beautyful…I wondere on, how you did you mount the backdrop on the wall. Did you stick it with ducktape?
Do you need to have light coming from above to create a Vanity Fair look with natural light?
Try this scenario and tweak it to suit. It’s gorgeous.
I adore this, Sue. You are killing it! Which boom size and arm length are you using?
Would the lighting be similar for a Vanity Fair style couple? Would anything change?
You could make it happen for romance style. Be sure both faces have light representations, let shadows go toward the boy if you have them.
I cried watching the reveal. Sue, you, your vision, and your team are amazing!!!
Thank you for educating me. I look forward to sharing my photos from applying this amazing instruction.
Hi Sue, could you share you camera settings on the 5d4 please. If you had shot a very pale skin, what would you have changed?
I would cry if I created something this beautiful.
Hi Sue, are you using cam ranger for your tethering?
Sue was using Lightroom before she received the Canon EOS 5D MARK IV Her new camera has wireless tethering so this is what you are seeing.
Sue Bryce! first time I have missed your live shoot’s since I joined… 🙁 I was out of town for me a big Photoshoot! but I am in aww watching the Video <3 your style is my addiction you only go higher and higher in what you teach! thank you ,thank you, thank you! will see you this coming Sueday Live!!! hugs to Cookie xo
Do you use a light meter or eyeball it? I would like to see what your lighting ratios were and your camera settings.
Sue uses her screen and the tether to manage her lighting settings. No meter.
How is the camera teathered?
And thank you Sue for all of this
Hello, I have a question, someone know in what ‘materials’ and made the reflector, It seem light and rigid, I want to do some like this, but I don’t know what I should take. Thank you (and sorry for my english)
It is a polystyrene board and you can find it at sign shops.
Wow, love, love this dress. Any idea where she got it?
Wow! I couldn’t watch this without getting teary-eyed, especially at the end. I love how Sue gets so excited when she knows she’s just captured that ‘it’ shot. I do the same thing! This is sooooo inspiring. I’m photographing a very intimate portraits session soon and can’t wait to use some of these amazing tips!
Uhhhhhhhh this is so beautiful. I will not be able to buy those lights right now. but willing to give it a try with the natural light version. would you put a light towards the backdrop separately? I have a left side window.. with not that much light coming in and one constant light and one like an ice light… thanks sue… Was the hair supported with those hair pieces you have …. looks amazing…. and the direction she looks toward – and your angles were good to see.. love it
all you need to do is emulate the DIRECTION of light the hair is just hair sprayed
wow ….. just watched this …. gorgeous …. I have 2 lights but dont have the height to try your overhead setup …. nor enough natural light …. will experiment with other ways though …. just divine and inspirational 🙂
Hi Sharon! Keep her seated for overhead then, I did this recently, worked like a gem.
So beautiful and inspiring. Thank you, Sue.
Thank you , Sue! Now I want to get profotos too. :O can you pls suggest other less expensive brands that aren’t so hard on the pocket but are just as good?
stay natural until you can afford them
You can use speed lights too. This is how I work in octaboxes. If you don’t have them yet, look on eBay for the last generation speed light and build a little collection. that are inexpensive and work beautifully that way.
To add to Sues comment, watch this one for natural light ideas.
Janina you might check out the Godox AB 360 II or the Flashpoint 600 Explor (a Godox rebranded, TTL flash) from Adorama…they have a wireless remote as well and are very good…the 360 is kind of like the Profoto B2 and the 600 is like the B1….TTL triggers for Sony, Canon and Nikon…
This is exactly what I will be doing. Xoxoxo
Thank you for your inspiration, Sue!
Which I had this video for my shoot last week! Can’t wait to try this out!
Love this light set up.
Would the results be just as good, with natural light? Would love to try it!
I have been doing the natural light version for years
Try this one Maria. https://suebryceeducation.com/course/flow-posing-woman/ also shoot into the tunnel.
Beautiful!!! I really Love it!!!
Can anyone tell me how the poly-boards are secured upright at the bottom? I see them moving and know they are anchored on the bottom but I cant figure out how to get mine to be sturdy.
