University of Texas Spirits



This was shot in a large studio with a Hasselblad body and medium format digital back (I nearly pissed myself getting to shoot on it). The girls are standing on a huge 10 ft wide sheet of thick background paper that goes off in to the background and ends up in a roll hanging from a background support.


On either side of them is a 6 ft by 10ft tall black foam core board. Behind each foam core is a 400 watt strobe shooting undiffused in to the white background.


I was shooting from about 15 feet away. Halfway between me and the girls and about three feet to the left was a large octa-box (softbox) that I cannot remember the exact settings on as I shot this stuff about two months ago.
