Fashion and beauty photographer Kris Fulk used a MOLA Demi white to shoot these portraits for a personal project.

Born in Laguna, Philippines, Kris Fulk is a fashion photographer based in North Carolina. She immigrated to New York City when she was only 10 years old. In the fall of 2001, Kris was accepted into the fashion design program of the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Witnessing the fall of the Twin Towers during September 11, however, precipitated her enlistment into the United States Navy. She served as an aviation electrician’s mate, working on F/A 18s for four years until her honorable discharge at the age of 23. Since then she has graduated magna cum laude from St. Mary’s College of Southern Maryland with a Studio Art/ Art History degree focused on photography and illustration, and pursues her love for fashion and art through her camera.

Purple Reign

The new Rayo reflector and Fionna Quinn:
»I wanted this beauty shoot to have a darker but dramatic feeling and I wanted a direct contrasty, quite hard light source. The shadows would deep and crisp and there would be little spill onto the background.«

Fionna has added a diffused layer to the front of reflector to slightly soften the overall look without distorting the true effect of the reflector. The Rayo was designed not to use our standard diffusion material as it would compromise the directional quality we were after. Using different fabrics as well as the slightest amount of diffusion can make the light just right. Sometimes the slightest amount of the right material will be all it needs. We have found these products by Lee to be very useful.
