Key light - Canon 550EX high and left of the subject on 1/2, zoomed to 105mm.

Fill Light - manual flash 38 guide rating and 1/4-1/8 ish power from camera right.

Both using shoot through umbrellas.

Aperture - f/11


Black c-r-u-s-h-e-d in Lightroom. Also uses my favourite, maxmumish contrast, low vibrance and high saturation. It makes the grapes and the highlights on the skull richer.


My plate is probably a bit large.
