How’s it going?
Well with just a couple of days to go until Christmas and a week to go until the New Year I’ve been taking some time to sort out and archive images from 2013.
So I thought I’d share a couple from a recent lighting test shoot with Bodybuilder and ex-WWE Wrestler Steve Lewington and give you an idea of the lighting used; all of which was with Elinchrom RX600 Heads.
Couldn’t think of a more appropriate name for this one…
Lighting Set Up
Here’s a look a the lighting set up for the limited light / low key shot above…
I’m a big fan of limited light for Physique shots and for me a 2 light set up is a favourite using various modifiers. When using a 2 light set up such as this there’s so many different looks you can get by changing things up a little e.g. rotate them around your subject, vary power output from each as opposed to having equal light either side and so on…
For the above picture of Steve, a 3 light set up was used. Same background and RX 600 Elinchrom Heads either side but this time instead of Gridded Strip Boxes, Gridded Spots were used. To the front was the 44cm Square Reflector with Grid from Elinchrom; a modifier I’m loving more each time I use it.
Right that’s all from me for today; I’ve a little bit of wrapping to finish off so I’d best make a move.
As always if you have any questions / comments feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com or post in the section below.
In the meant time though have a great Monday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow…Christmas Eve.
