Test photo, hair model photo shoot

One of the first test shots from a session with a Swedish model. The client wanted to show their hair styling products and tools, so I set up for a very white and soft light with light shadows.

Lighting info

Main light from a Profoto ComPact 600R fitted with a Softlight Reflector camera left angled down towards the model's face. Below flash and in front of camera is a Photoflex LitePanel (white) to create some fill. On both sides of the model I placed large paper walls to reflect some light. Behind model there are 2 Profoto ComPacts in Striplight softboxes (one with grid, one without) for lighting the background and act as both rimlight and hairlight.


Some postprocessing in Lightroom, but nothing more than that yet.
