Portrait Lighting

Leica M9 + Leica Summilux ASPH 50mm f1.4 @ f1.4

 

How did I light this? 1 or 2 lights? Gridded studio light(s)? Fresnel lens? Snoot? Gridded strip box?

 

Any ideas?

 

OK the answer is none of those. My Cateye bike light handheld (left hand) shot in a lift after a model cigarette break and Leica M9 camera in right hand pre-focused with hyperfocal distance.

 

It's nice to keep it simple sometimes and I was able to show how you can use any light source for portrait photography as part of the photography tuition.
