News: New Mola SOLLO

Mola Introduces the new Mola Sollo.
The rebirth of the Silver Setti is now the Mola Sollo.

The new silver interior is 1 stop brighter than our previous Satin Silver.
Brighter, Sharper and now paired with our Opal glass and PAD combination.
This newer, shinier interior surface of the SOLLO takes even more advantage of the deeper profile of the original 28″ Setti, further improving contrast and specular highlights.
This is the new 28″ Sollo. The current 28″ Satin Silver Setti is now discontinued.

Mola user: Jonathan Dear – Dark Monsoon shoot

Australian wedding photographer, Jonathan Dear takes a break from his current busy season to shoot some personal fashion work as a collaboration, titled ‘Dark Monsoon’. It was shot in some local rainforest, adding smoke for visual effects and using his white 22″ mola demi (with stacked OPAL and PAD diffusers) as the main light.

“The mola demi really is my go-to location modifier. I can get a really soft diffused look with it, but I can also use my white mola flxgrid and get a harder look from it. Its size and portability really makes it just about the only modifier I use outdoors.”

Mola user: Fiona Quinn workshop

Wow so its been a while. It’s good to be back!

New Zealand fashion photographer, Fiona Quinn, recently ran a fashion photography workshop.

“This time we explored shooting for different magazine genres and working with new season Winter trends to produce shots that are current and fashion forward. Both shots use simple lighting techniques but produce quite different results.” she says.

here are some final images Fiona provided us with as well as a behind-the-scenes shot of her setup. In this case we see her using a white 28″ Mola Setti.

and her lovely as always results…

and some further shots from the workshop available on her blogpost here from the day.

“Our Workshop on May the 6th is all booked up but if you are interested in a future Workshop get in touch with me through my website contact form and I will send you all the information and let you know when the next one is. We may run one more before Winter sets in otherwise it will likely be later in the year.

You get to meet my amazing team and learn how to create a successful fashion shoot from start to finish.”
