This is the Hair Light.
In case you’re wondering, a hair light puts a narrow pool of light on the back of the subject’s head to light up the hair and provide good separation from the background.
The first photo shows the part that connects it to a tripod light stand. There’s a 1/4-20 Tee Nut inside of it. Two knobs allow the arm to be adjusted near or far and the other lets me angle the arm up and down.
Then there’s the head which can swivel on the arm and the head can pivot up and down.
Notice the big steel washer.
In my last post I said you might be surprised, and this is it.
That’s an LED lamp from Harbor Freight and it’s just right for this application.
The next part of this project will be the fill light.
The main light is the first one I built and the fill light will be much like it but it will not have a stand. It’ll be hung in one place near the camera position to fill in the shadows made by the main.
Thanks for looking.
