Emily Soto - NYC Polaroid

Emily Soto is an internationally renowned and respected fashion photographer based in New York City, New York. Emily’s style focuses on romanticism and high-fashion. Her distinct vision and creativity have landed her work on the covers of magazines and in editorial spreads world-wide. Emily’s creative flow is often apparent in during her fashion photography workshops, as seen in this video.

Emily shoots her stunning models with both digital and instant film formats, creating stunning fine art-esque portraits. For a faded appearance, she experiments with wrapping tulle around her camera lens.

Throughout this workshop, Emily is utilizing Westcott’s Skylux LED and Rapid Box XL to illuminate her subjects. The Skylux LED is a daylight-balanced continuous light source with a beautiful 94 CRI. The Rapid Box XL acts as the essential modifier for the Skylux thanks to is lightweight build, durable framework, and reflective interior.

Emily Soto places this single-light setup centered above her subjects, angled down toward them. She mixes this lighting with the window light available in the studio. This creates a soft, specular output.
