Studio Portrait Rehearsal

Edited 17 Equip Test Drive 0660

 An unrepentant portraitist, Sunday afternoon in studio, trying out new gear with dancers is complete heaven.  Time and schedule dictated broad brush lighting setups. But like dancers, if I don’t rehearse, the performance will suffer. To make this, a strobe was boomed overhead, fitted with a homemade “globe”.  She held a small reflector to partly open neck shadows and a gridded strobe on the background provided some separation. With more time, I’d change back light position but testing the “globe” was accomplished. I wanted to make light as elegant and lovely as she is.
