    Hi all-

    Can anyone tell me how this lighting effect is achieved:

    http://www.heatherrivlin.com/index2.php

    The tonality in her B/W work is the same in every photo. Is this Photoshop or a special lighting technique?

    Thanks in advance to all!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I had a look at her photos...they are very good. I don't think there is anything like special effects going on though. They are well exposed, maybe purposely a bit on the bright side. They have very nice contrast and they are very sharp.

    The light looks very soft. I would assume that she's using softboxes on studio lights.

    There is nothing special about her lighting, she is just using a large lightsource as Big Mike says. She though does it very nicely. By the way, is "BIKE MIKE" really BIG.

    Thanks for the responses. I have been trying to imitate her lighting technique, to no avail...yet. One day, one day... :wink:
