Clamshell portrait golden hair

Clamshell portrait of debuting Swedish writer with golden hair.


/ Studio lighting setup diagram /


Lighting info

Main light from a Profoto ComPact 600R fitted with a 5' softbox Octa camera slightly right above a silver reflector, creating a clamshell.


Behind the model, camera left, was a medium sized softbox lighting a translucent/semi-transparent reflector with diffusion material attached, like using a lightbox as background.


The distance between the camera and the model was about 1 meter, and the distance behind the model to the diffusor was approx. the same, 1 meter.
