video clip: photo session with Litepanels Sola 4 fresnel lights – w/ Ulorin Vex

A behind-the-scenes video clip of the photo session with Ulorin Vex.

We did three different setups with Ulorin Vex – three different outfits by Ulorin, and three different ways of using these lights. Even though I used very specific lights here –  the Litepanels Sola 4 LED Fresnel Lights (B&H) - I hope that the commentary, and the way the photo shoot was directed, will be instructional and perhaps even entertaining. Enjoy!
