Make it Better Later: Aaron



lighting: softboxes v. close in on the left and right (with gobo to mask them in the frame) angled slightly toward the camera. Speedlight right behind subject for rim/hairlight. A little extra contrast & sharpening in PS.

    Very cool. Lighting - as the man said is spot on
  • M.Dobiey PRO 7y

    Interesting lighting. The light loks rather hard but it doesn't look like bare flash either. Any strobist infothat you would share?
  • /\/\ATT GRU/\/\ 7y

    ok I had been meaning to put strobist info up, honest.

    It's actually a very soft but very directional light - there was no fill coming from reflections anywhere which gives the this particular look

    awesome lighting. I just got 2 more Viv 285HVs and was looking for some good 3 light setups and came across this in strobist. Great work.
