In the top photograph, a remote flash, mounted on a stand and placed in an octodome softbox, was used to freeze the action of the model jumping. Compare the contrast and detail in that image to the second image. That image looks flat, because the day was overcast, and overcast days produce flat lighting.
The pictures below (clockwise, from top left) show:
• flat, overcast day lighting;
• how a reflector can brighten up the subject…
• how a flash creates even more contrast;
• and the remote flash set up that Vered used.
