It’s been a while, but we’ve featured Brad Trent’s excellent blog, Damn Ugly Photography, before. If you’re curious, Brad came up with the name for his blog when asked to fill out the name of his business at the New York Photo Expo. He posts a ton of behind-the-scenes content of what he’s working on and mixes it up with daily music posts as well.

Recently, he shot artist Connie Brown for The Wall Street Journal in her studio. Brad wanted “a bright, airy look,” but when he got on location, the studio was in shade. What to do? Set up your own sun!

Brad used a Magnum Reflector on an Acute2 as well as a standard reflector outside two of the studio’s windows. He writes that they “were amazed at how realistic the results were.”

    Too bad the original blog is broken, no image are available.
    Without that it doesn’t make much sense.
