I wanted to try this out for a while. I saw the idea a long time ago in a magazine. Emily is not really standing near a window with blinds in it. She is leaning against the wall in the living room.
To do this I cut out slots in some cardboard and hung it from a light stand with a reflector holder. I used a strobe with only a reflector on it and no umbrella or softbox. I put the cardboard between the strobe and Emily.
I converted this to mono in Lightroom.
I brushed her hair before we started. She kept jumping around too much for it to stay neat between shots.
