In my low key work i will have one light with the barn doors to create a dark moody feeling, I have a feeling i may have to use a black background but i would like to create this effect with just the lighting alone.
As you can see the actual layout is much different than i had orriginally planned. This was my 1st studio shoot i was a little nieve into thinking that it would be a breeze....i admit defeat. Because of the nature of the shoot, we tried different poses and lighting positions to get it right. I have included some images of the set up and equipment that i used and my favorite 10 images from the shoot will follow in the next blog. There was a last minute addition to the lighting thats not on the floor plan and thats the snoot but it didnt feel comfortable so i removed it.
