With a busy week ahead getting all the final preparations together for my Two Day Intensive Course this coming Saturday/Sunday, so…

Thought I’d add a quick post showing a recent picture and with it, a lighting diagram to give you an idea of the set up.

The picture below is one of Steve Lewington that I took in between taking physique shots last week (I posted one of the results HERE)


Ok so the lighting for this portrait really couldn’t have been simpler; just the 175cm Elinchrom Rotalux Octa and Steve positioned in front of the black seamless we’d been shooting on during the day. Love using this light…it’s just so incredibly versatile.


Right that’s me…told you it was a quick one 🙂

Catch you tomorrow,

    Beautifull picture… It seems simple if you have a light that can handle the 1.8 that is…. ?! Right?
