PopPhotoPeter Kolonia has written a post on about the lens flare experiments of photographer Nathan Schroder. In a detailed breakdown of Schroder’s shot, readers learn why and how he purposefully introduced flare, and wanted lack of contrast to wash out detail.

Typically, pro shooters work to avoid this type of look, but “ethereal” was what Schroder wanted. Kolonia admirably explains how the effect was achieved, and a comprehensive 3D lighting diagram will enable readers to experiment with their own flare effects.

This portrait was shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 50mm f/1.4 Canon EF lens, Profoto Zoom Reflector 2 and Profoto Pro-7a.

Schroder is currently moving his studio from Dallas to New York. We hope to run into this talented fashion photographer when he arrives. You can see more of Schroder’s work at his site or in the interview we did with him a while ago.
