    Yes, you'll notice in the photo and the set-up shot that she is wearing two different tops. This was changed mid-ways through.


    1x WL x3200 in large octabox above camera slightly right for key, 1x ABR800 on camera as fill, 2x AB800s rear left/right with stripbox used as rim lighting, 1xAB800 & 1x AB1600 left and right respectively used to illuminate BG and set -1 stop below key. 2x black flags used left and right between rim lighting and camera to control flare, and 2x blue training mats from gym used to keep BG lights off of model.

      What lens did you use?

    7. tim-johnson 61 months ago | reply

      @eric-mack, I used the Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8 for the actual photo. This set-up photo was not from the same cam, it is from D40x with the 18-135mm

      yeah, saw that, but I looked at the final shot too so I was curious.
