As promised here’s a quick post to give you a look at the lighting set up for the picture I shared yesterday of UK Pro Boxers Steven Cook and Nathan Graham…

The photo shoot took place in Steven’s Gym, Pegasus in Aylesbury UK and as luck would have it in one corner there just happens to be a small section of grey wall where lots of kit is stored, saving me from setting up my own grey seamless.

As for the lighting, a single Elinchrom Rotalux Octa and an Elinchrom ELC 1000 head was used from camera left, positioned foward of Steven and Nathan and angled down slightly so as to give a Cross Lighting pattern; my favourite lighting style.

So that’s just a quick look at the lighting. As for the post production / colour grading I’ve been asked a few times on social media about this so it’s on the list to record as a tutorial and I’ll let you know as soon as it’s done.

Cheers,
Glyn
