I was going through my 2015 files last night and came across this image from a shoot a short while ago at Cloverleaf Studio in Crewe.
I’ve already shared a Behind the Scenes post showing the lighting set up from other images from this particular shoot [LINK], but seeing as I’d not included this one I thought I’d share the set up for it with you today…
I’m a big fan of using Elinchrom’s Rotalux 175cm Octa as a white background because (a) it’s so quick and easy to set up and (b) it doesn’t take up much room. The same goes for the 135cm Octa which was used to the front/side of our model (Sarah Chrisp) in this set up. When using the Octa as a white background, so long as there is a white area around your model, it’s then very easy to extend it during post production and make it look as thought you were shooting against a much larger surface; does that make sense?
Finally, to finish off, a silver reflector was positioned opposite side to add some light into the shadow areas as without it, they were just a little too dark for what I wanted with this image.
Anyway just a quick post for today but I thought you might appreciate another Behind the Scenes set up.
As always if you have any questions/comments, then please feel free to make use of the comments section below and I’ll be sure to get back to you.
Have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
