Journey Kitchen asked me today how to create the pure, almost ethereal white background of Donna Hay photos like the one above. To be truthful, I'm not certain. Heck, if I could make photos like this, I'd have done so already and would be working for Donna (a girl can dream, right?) =p. But after noting that there are almost no shadows in this photo and also remembering some photos I'd seen of the Donna Hay studio, I was fairly certain that the lighting conditions were key to this effect. And since I'd already uploaded the studio photos for Kulsum, I thought I might as well share with everyone :). As you'll see below, Donna's studio is surrounded by large windows on all sides which gorgeous white light spills through. All these windows have sheer white screens over them which diffuse the abundant light. This essentially turns the studio into a huge natural light softbox in which these dreamy white photos can be captured. Or that's my best guess anyway 8). If anyone knows better, please chime in!
