Here are the pictures from the second of two one day workshops earlier this week.
The LoveCube™ takes centre stage for this shot of Becca.
Three Bowens flash heads with grids provided the key, backlight and background illumination whilst a Speedlight on 1/4 power triggered with a PW Flex was inside the LoveCube™
The day started with a simple lighting rig to establish the seperation of zones and the properties of shadows. My grey studio wall was about 2m behind Becca and was rendered black.
A single light on the background reveals the level of light control I need to maximise creative opportunity.
We used a beauty dish as a key light and LC11 gel on the background for this shot.
We used a softbox as a key for this frame. I used a Triflector too. The rest of the lighting rig was the same as the previous shot but with a different gel - LC45 instead.
Becca has clearly defined arm muscles as the double 3/4 backlighting has revealed here. LC35 was providing the colour this time.
In this frame, I used just one light and my grey wall to make a dramatic picture.
Simple lighting with pools of hard light is part of my style strategy.
The spot of light from a honeycomb grid fitted to a Bowens studio flash head is no match for a Fresnel lens but is fine for most social photography.
A higher key alternative to the shot above. Both the shots were taken in my white zone.
Next it was time for a bit of fun with the Broncolor ringflash.
The same yellow wall with a more standard Lovegrove lighting set up.
Russian Velvet is starting to reveal it's range of hues in my pictures.
We finished with another single light shot in my Russian Velvet zone.
If you want to join me on a creative studio lighting workshop you can get more details here. My complete set of the 38 gels in the Lovegrove Studio Collection is available in 12″x12″ squares here. Colour is my life and I see my life in colour.
