Studio Strobes

Studio strobes may be equipped with large diffusers known as "soft boxes." The diffuse light produces diffuse shadows that are not especially distracting. Studio strobe considerations:

  • Manual controls
  • Sensitivity (ISO/ASA) and aperture range
  • Low ISO numbers and large f numbers

If you have enough space to move the patient farther away from the backdrop, you may be able to pretty much eliminate the cast shadows altogether. What has actually happened here is that the shadows have gotten so large and diffuse that they bleed out of the frame.
