As part of the lightGIANTS project and this blog, I want to try and document a lot of the lighting set-ups we use in the studio. I haven’t decided on a format yet but I guess one will develop as time goes on.
The was actually one of the first shots I took that evening and I was only testing my light set up before we started to shoot. But I love the exposure and his expression so much that I kept it.
The light set up
The key light (with a large softbox) is 90 degrees to the camera left and there is a second flash (with a smaller soft box) placed behind it. All the powered light sources are coming from the left hand side. There are 2 reflectors placed exactly opposite the 2 flashes
What I don’t like about this photo is the shoulder on the right hand side its to close to the edge of the image it could have been exposed a bit better.
Camera Sony DSLR-A900
Exposure 0.004 sec (1/250)
Focal Length 85 mm
ISO Speed 200
