How to use Gobos To Shape Light
What is a gobo, you ask? A gobo can be anything, as long as it’s placed in between a light source and your subject. This casts unique looking Shadows on your subject. You can use pretty much anything that’s not a completely solid object – in this case we experimented with a large houseplant, a room divider, and a ladder. Even if you don’t own strobes, you can still make use of gobos when shooting outside. In fact, you may have used them before without knowing it. Even a tree branch casting a Shadow from the sun on your subject’s Face is a gobo!
