Tango the dog finally gets to share the stage with Sarah. This shot was lit using a Broncolor ring flash plugged into my trusty Mobil A2R kit. Wall colour was provided by Dulux.
Wow what a day! We shot simple set ups, and created repeatable dynamic images. We studied shadows, the qualities of light and had fun on the way.
The shoot started with a simple boudoir lighting set up. It doesn't matter weather you use a sofa, bed, bean bag or open space, upstage lighting is very flattering without being too revealing.
This was the first outing for the checker floor and white wall zone in the rear corner of the studio. A splash of harmonic colour was provided by Lovegrove Studio Collection LC34 gel.
I used LC20 for this shot of Sarah
LC30 set the mood for this shot. This four light shot was taken against my grey studio wall.
A quick switch of gel to LC 21 and the mood changed again
The colour in this shot was provided by a Colourama Coffee paper background roll
The LoveCube™ had to play it's part in the day too.
I couldn't resist an Atlas pose. The LoveCube™ isn't really that heavy, trust me. I popped a Speedlight inside fitted with a Sto-Fen and a Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 as a trigger.
I brought out the Fresnel head on my Broncolor Mobil kit to light this exquisite shot. The transition from lit to unlit area is just perfect. It puts honeycomb grids and snoots into the shade.
Just one close up from the plethora of shots lit with the Fresnel lensed light.
This high key shot was lit with one light and is probably one of the easiest in the set to take.
The colour 'Russian Velvet' looks so good I bought the dot com. Tomorrow's set of pictures features my Russian velvet paint at the next level.
I’d love you to join me on a studio lighting shoot experience. The journey of discovery and creativity will leave you inspired and empowered to shoot more pictures that will sell. My studio is equipped with 3 Bowens Gemini Pro R flash heads, 4 Bowens Prolites that I bought in the mid 90’s and my Broncolor Mobil kit. It’s all quite normal kit and my studio space is just 7m x 5m. All the systems and knowledge I use to shoot is freely shared with you my delegates.
