Additional Notes

The key light was a 70 cm beauty dish without a grid (it is normally impossible to see me take shots using a bd without a grid). Why without a grid? Well, the hair kept looking bad in the photos: the shadows were a bit too strong, but I couldn’t light them from the bottom with a reflector because blood was everywhere. Taking off the grid solved all the problems, so searching for another solution would have been nonsense. Behind the girl I placed a black sun reflector (180 x 120 cm) to serve as a background and directed the light at it to make it a bit brighter. I also directed lights with grids (made of straws for drinks) at the hair from the side to obtain stronger reflections on it.
