Austin Fashion Week 2012
These shots were taken at Bella Salon, during Austin's Fashion Week here in central Texas. We setup a small lighting rig using two strobes that I could alternate between with differing modifiers for simple but dramatically different alterations.
These strobes were being triggered via their built in optical slave. The advantage of this was any photographer that wanted to walk in and shoot only had to pop a flash. A bit archaic but it worked out great. No proprietary triggers/transmitters, etc. Just plain old simple power set, optical slave in line of sight, BAM, FIRE! 60" Parabolic to my left, 24" shoot through to my right. both positioned so center point is at around head height and then center is pointed down to the eyes.
The wall in the background is the wall for their hair drying stations at Bella Salon & Spa in Austin, Texas. The ladies there were kind enough to invite me back after our other recent event just a few weeks ago.
