Portrait - Jury member ALMA #5
Portraits of the jury members of The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA, the world's largest prize for children's and young adult literature).
>> Setup here
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).
