WHEN EVAN CATE risks life and limb by standing his subject over him on a piece of Plexiglass, he makes sure the lighting will pay off. For “Calm Before The Storm” he used a small D.I.Y. softbox camera left to help overpower the ambient light. Then he clamped a bare flash high up on a ladder for a touch of rim light. A little help from Mother Nature’s cloud cover adds the finishing touch. It’s lighting anyone can try, but please DON’T suspend your subjects above you without the help of trained professionals.
