Ruta’s here demonstrating how, in lighting, less can be more with this shot from Ashley Hylbert’s workshop earlier this year. Lighting (sun) is from overhead and behind the white wall (foam board) with just a bit of fill coming from camera left. Even with her wearing a white top, her hair frames her face and her connection to something out of the frame makes you wonder what she sees.
