Lighting info

I was lucky when the conference table in the room we had for shooting the portraits had a semi-glossy light grey surface, so it worked perfect as a fill light from below to lighten the shadows. Other than that I used a Profoto Compact 300 (or 600?) as the main light in a 2x3 (60 x 90 cm) softbox camera right right outside the frame, and another camera left behind the sitting person aimed at the back of their heads for rim/hair light.


Some minor adjustments in Lightroom and Photoshop (removed some dents in the plastic table).

    Gillar verkligen det här porträttet. Både för ljussättningen och för känslan. Tack för alla bra tips och förklaringar!
  • Stefan Tell 5y

    Tack för det, är själv väldigt nöjd med det också. Ska försöka få till fler av den typen i miljöer och då kanske även vid bord. Är lätt att fastna i att alltid ha dem stående någonstans.

    Det finns mer av den här typen på min blogg, om du inte redan varit där dvs.
