The ray of light peeking through the crack creates a blinding effect on the subject. The light is so bright that it blinds her vision, covering her eyes in the photo. The black and white filter makes the ray of light even more bright.
These different types of lighting create different gradients and colours of light giving an image more meaning and depth. The way the light is enables the image to be more interesting and direct to what you want for your shoot.
Great idea to use for backdrop or as a giant light reflector -- a moveable wall on vintage castors. one side is painted bone white and one mocha, colour matched from our fav seamless paper. so perfect for.
