Following on from the post last week where I shared the picture of Mac and Sam, I’ve got a couple more from that shoot to show you and have also included a look at the lighting I used…


Ok so in the photograph below you can see how this picture of Sam was lit.

I used the Elinchrom 175cm Octa with the ELC 1000 head and positioned it side on and forward of the subject:


Here’s a lighting diagram to give you an idea of how far forward the Octa was positioned so as to give the lighting pattern that I wanted:


Now the exact same lighting was used for this portrait of Mac (below); only difference being is that I zoomed in for a much tighter crop:


For those of you who may have missed it or maybe even would like a reminder, below is a video I recorded showing how to set this lighting up:

Right that’s all from me for today so have a good one and I’ll catch you back here next time.

    HI, wonderful image. Is the background textured, or is that added in later?
