Strobist CTO exercise 1

    Newer Older

    See the assignment page for details.

    Had some difficulties with this exercise. Since I was shooting indoors, it was impossible to use umbrella, because it scattered too much light to the background and prevented it turning to blue. So I had to go with bare strobes.

    I used two strobes. One CTO gelled from the right of the camera and one ungelled gridded strobe to the background, which is a white wall.

    Posing idea is from some cd case I saw somewhere.

      Nice shot. I like the dramatic lighting and dark side against the light background. I tried it outside with no success.
