We initially came across Nick Dandalos’ stuninng work over at Modelmayhem. Nick is a London based fashion and glamour photographer with published work in a number of international men’s magazines.

Here are some his mola-lit shots:

In this gorgeous shot, Nick uses a clever technique of stacking 2 diffusers inside the Mola for a even softer centre-core of light. (We will discuss this technique in a later post) It was lit with a white 43.5″ Mola Mantti with stacked Opal + PAD diffusers, white sock and a fabric grid…

These other two shots were lit with a white 22″ Mola Demi with stacked Opal + PAD diffusers and a honeycomb grid…

In Nancy Brown‘s new photography book – ‘People Photography: Capturing Lifestyle for Art & Stock‘ we spot a 33.5″ Mola Euro in use!
Mola’s are not just for model-ly fashion photos, master photographer Nancy proves they are just as amazing at creating lifestyle images. Nancy was one of the earliest adopters of the Mola Euro, picking one up nearly 25 years ago! She came across Mola softlights at the first Photoplus Expo Mola exhibited at in New York.

Mola spotted: Make Me a Supermodel – Australia


Multi-awarding winning Australian Photographers, Denis Montalbetti and Gay Campbell of Montalbetti+Campbell did an amazing photoshoot for the first airing of the Australian TV series – Make me a Supermodel.

The huge 3.7m square set was created on the floor, composed of a series of large printed panels, the backgrounds from Gay and Denis’ personal stock libaries. Shooting from an elevated position, the models were directed by Denis and Gay from above as they lay on the background. The photoshoot occured at B2 Studios.

A diffused 43.5″ Mola Mantti was used for these images, and in some images part of the difusion sock was masked to control the spill of the light.

The incredible results:
