German Photographer??Ralph Man, brings us a lovely shoot today using the 33″ Mola Beamm softlight. Although we have quite a few Beamm’s out there, we seldom see photos from this unique modifier. It’s polished interior gives it a more concentrated and directional light, unlike any of the other larger Mola range. We love the direction and styling in this shoot… more of Ralph’s own work at www.ralph-man.com.

During the 31st International Motorcycling Meeting in Faro, Portugal, they approached bikers to make non-traditional portraits of them.

Doing away with makeup, fashion and possibly every hint of conventional fashion beauty, they photograph some tough-looking bikers. In fact they were all very kind and very interested […]

Mike keeps it simple using a white background, one light modified with a white 22″ Mola Demi with diffusion sock and a curved reflector.
