Hey Folks,

Hope you had a great Christmas.

Today I’ve a quick post to share a new picture with you plus a look behind the scenes showing the lighting set up used in the studio:

Studio & Lighting Set Up
Ok for the studio set up, our models/fighters were photographed against a black background with the floor consisting of black foam gym tiles (in case of any falls and for the full length shots).

For the lighting I wanted to replicate the kind of lighting you’d expect to see in an under ground/back street organised fight:

Here’s a screen grab of my Lightroom catalog where you can see a variety of the shots from the day. I’ll be working on more over the coming days and will be sure to share some of the finished results here:

And again, here’s some video footage filmed on my iPhone 5 during the shoot where you can get a look at the studio and lighting set up:

Ok that’s all from me for today but if you have any questions/comments please feel free to make use of the comments section below.

In the mean time whatever you’re up to, have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
