Today we peek into the gallery of uber talented editorial photographer, Brad Trent. Just from the small sample of images Brad provided us below, you can see he is in high demand with his portrait work. Brad runs a New York studio called Damn Ugly Photography but his images are anything but.
We initially stumbled onto him back on a strobist blog post here, and found he had these words to say about Mola Softlights…
“I own… a 22″ Mola ‘Demi’, and we regularly rent the larger Mola Setti (28″) and Euro (33″) dishes. To me, they give you a much more interesting quality of light than simply tossing up a bank and they don’t generally have the problem of turning into sails when you find yourself out on a windy day! And with the Mola’s, the way they’re designed makes it much easier to get a soft light that still has a directional contrast to it. There is nothing I hate more than that ‘wall of light’ look….but then, when you look at my pictures you probably already guessed that!”
