Mola user: Jonathan Dear – Winter Portfolio build

Australian wedding photographer, Jonathan Dear brings us some lovely winter images (Australian winter currently) he lensed recently as part of a model’s portfolio build. All the following images were lit with the white 22″ mola demi with stacked central OPAL + PAD diffusers. Either the diffusion sock was used to get some really sort subtle lighting for fill or the white 22″ mola FLXgrid was used for some more angled light.

Mola user: Fiona Quinn – One Fine Day

New Zealand fashion photographer and regular contributor Fiona Quinn, is back with this gorgeous shoot titled ‘One Fine Day’ shot for Remix Magazine.

“I am a bit of a collector so this shoot was a chance to use some of my vintage retro pieces. Laura Jade goes from daytime Diva to Night time Vixen – not many people can look like that in a catsuit!”

In this shoot Fiona rocks the white 28″ Mola Setti, either diffused with the standard sock or unsocked. As usual, we love her soft subtle lighting and styling.

A few more words on her blogpost from this shoot.


Update: Mola Sollo

A few people have been asking about further information on the new Mola 28″ Sollo. Here is a photo of the new reflector. Here is is pictured with the OPAL glass central deflector which also has the stabiliser rings to hold it securely. These both ship with the Sollo. Like the other larger Molas (28″ and above) it has an integrated handle to secure onto your stand of choice.

We do have stock at Mola Inc, distributors should start to list this item shortly. (E.g. B&H etc)

Mola’s spotted: Pere Larrègula & Llumm Studios

Saludo to our Spanish friends!

In this bts video we see Barcelona photographer Pere Larregula shoot with some of the Mola range at the Spanish Llumm studios, courtesy of Innovofoto distribution. At the 3:00 minute mark he talks about his experience with Mola from the shoot. Some stunning results from a talented shooter!

Even if you don’t understand Spanish, its great viewing to see how Pere goes about his shots. In Pere’s blog post from this test shoot,

He mentions how the undulated rippled design of the mola soft lights, produces a more realistic, dimensional light which is less flat than other softlights. Certainly when working with medium format, he can notice a difference in the skin and clothing detail from images produced with the Mola range.

The following video has been put together by photographer Daniel Torrello

and here is some still images from the shoot:
