Family Dynamics

    Newer Older

    A composite family portrait that I had shot a few months back, but had to make some revisions on from the original for the family (the son went from a Yellow to Orange belt in the time since we shot them).

    Strobist info: we had three fixed lights: an elinchrom quadra shooting through a 3x3 lastolite skylight outside, directed at the wall you see through the window.

    Another Quadra through a 100cm Deep Octa on-axis literally just over the camera lens, for fill light.

    We used two *moving* lights to light the family, for the mother and son we had a lastolite hotrod strip softbox in-behind them as kickers and used a 24" ezybox as key (both with 580exII's), the dad just had the ezybox, and we used the strip light in the foreground for the daughter.
