With this shot I tried to emulate the lighting setup of a portrait of Ingo Dumreicher. I used a grey, speckled painter's fleece as backdrop. We tried to be very accurate with lighting and posing and it wasn't quite as easy as I thought. But in the end I think we did a pretty good job.


Strobist info: One LP120 at 1/4 power with a Sto-Fen diffusor shot through a Westcott umbrella from the front right. One half of the umbrella (the one nearer to the background) was covered with a black reflective cover to keep the light from spilling on the background. One bare Nissin Di866 at 1/64 power directly behind the subject, pointed at the background. One bare LP120 at 1/8 power from the back left for rim. The flash was flagged to keep the light from spilling on the background. All flashes were fired by Cactus V4 radio triggers.
