Mola user: Jonathan Dear on weddings

Australian wedding photographer, Jonathan Dear brings us some lovely wedding day images he has created with the white 22″ Mola Demi.

“I love the portability of the Demi. I have tried soft-boxes, umbrellas and wide reflectors over the years but nothing compares to the Mola Demi. I can have it setup real fast and I don’t have to worry about wind outdoors.”

He uses a lightweight 600w Profoto lithium pack with the Demi mounted on a boom-stick and held by an assistant.

“It means I can move around alot, a sort of run and gun style shooting which is essential for the fast paced nature of a wedding day.” 

“I even use it for the family formal photos on the wedding day, and I’m able to get quite alot of spread out of it.”

Most of the time he uses his Demi unsocked, with either an OPAL or stacked OPAL + PAD centre diffuser configuration.

Here’s some of his images taken with the 22″ Demi…

Mola user: Michael Corsentino – self portrait

San Francisco based photographer, Michael Corsentino brings us a great setup for shooting your own headshot. Mike keeps it simple using a white background, one light modified with a white 22″ Mola Demi with diffusion sock and a curved reflector. Usually creating your own self portraits can be quite tricky, but Mike uses a wireless approach allowing him to fine-tune the camera / lighting from his posed position. (read more about that here)

and the fabulous result…

Mola user: Polina Osherov – Indiscretion

Polina Osherov is a commercial fashion & portrait photographer working out of Indianapolis, IN. She loves being a visual storyteller, creating tales of romance and heartbreak with her team using strong directional lighting that lends a cinematic quality to her work. In this shoot titled ‘Indiscretion’, Polina uses a white 22″ Mola Demi. We love the old film noir look she re-created to tell this story.
