As a photographer, you’ve gotta challenge yourself at times to stay on your A-game. One of the ways to do that is to look at other photographer’s techniques and mimic them. Then you get to learn some nifty tricks about lighting. I didn’t nail these perfectly but then again when you’re using a magazine cover as a gobo and a magazine subscription card as a snoot, you can’t expect perfection lol. I tried though.
Yeah, the different colored jackets is one of those small details that I just went with because of what was available lol. The light isn’t QUITE as concentrated on the face as I shot it but my space to shoot in was extremely limited so I couldn’t move my main snooted light back any further. The background light is a single SB600 pointed at the back wall. Both flashes were triggered with cheapo RF602s from china
This second light study was from a strobist posting…
Looking at this one in retrospect, I really missed it lol. I’ll try it again later lol.
