Today’s post on Unit 32 we shall be looking at my Studio planning for the shoot.
As I plan to shoot four images I need to plan the studio lighting set-ups for each shoot. The objectives for these shoots is to light the subject by using the studio lights in an unconventional way to help me create four conceptual portraits.
For the first shot I will use one studio flash with a large soft box attached. The camera will have a long exposure of 20 seconds. I will then hold the remote trigger and fire the flash at different intervals.
The second image will be a photo of a female model shot with a studio flash. The studio flash will be suspended on a studio boom behind the model. The studio flash will have a barn door and honeycomb attachment to control the light from behind. I then used a gold reflector to reflect some of the light back onto the model.
The third image, is of another female model that will be shot with a studio flash from behind. The studio flash had a barn door and honeycomb attachment to control the light from behind. I will use a secondary studio flash with a coarse honeycomb facing the model’s face. The studio flash will have to be set with a very low power to light some of the model’s face.
The image of the girl will be the first image shot, I will use a studio flash with a large soft-box attatched on a studio boom. The second shot will be taken with two studio flashes with soft-boxes attatched facing the white backdrop allowing me to create a silhouette of the male model.
