I’ve had a few questions lately about the lighting set up for the portraits shots I’ve been taking of Kick Boxer Steven ‘Pocket Rocket‘ Cook and the coaches for the Train Like a Pro – White Collar Boxing.
So, For today I thought I’d share a few more of the portraits PLUS a screen grab from some video we filmed this past weekend that shows another of the lighting set ups…
In an earlier post I showed a similar set up using a light (Elinchrom RX600) firing into a very large umbrella for the background but this time I’m using an Elinchrom Rotalux 175cm Octa.
Both work great and give a small ‘footprint’ when working in a relatively busy and small corner of the room but the main difference is that with the umbrella, part of the retouching involves cloning out some of it’s framework. (I’ll be recording a short video on this for my YouTube Channel)
Again, on the boom I’ve used an Elinchrom DLite RX One, mainly because it’s extremely light but which is firing, and the 44cm Square Reflector aiming down onto a white reflector resting on a makeshift stand out of step up platforms 🙂
Just a quick post, so that’s all from me for today, so as always if you have any questions/comments, then feel free to make use of the comments section below or drop me an email to email@example.com
