In response to Brokeh, the Nature Sequence does loads to scale back reflections on glass objections, and you may actually see very minimal reflections within the glasses on the important thing facet of my face. On this occasion, the 6×6 Rose Backyard body was touching the ground 5 toes away on the digicam’s proper facet.

I used the Litepanels Astra 6X Daylight as the sunshine in all cases as a result of I felt like many individuals might need entry to a 1×1 LED fixture like this.
