    Hayli Jade - B&W

    by JazzXP » Tue Nov 01, 2011 11:47 pm

    Trying out my new gear - a boom stand & 70cm Beauty Dish

    Probably my most complex setup so far.

    - Ranger RX with Action head through 70cm white Elinchrom Beauty Dish (silver reflector) on Boom overhead
    - Nikon SB-600 to camera right behind model with gobo to keep off background
    - Yongnou YN-460II to camera left behind model with gobo to keep off background
    - Fired with Phottix Atlas trigger on SB-600 with rest of strobes on slave
    - Background was a 4m of black polar fleece I managed to pick up for 30% off yesterday

    For some of the others in the series, I had a reflector in there too.

    So nice to see someone get away from 'passport' lighting.

    Congrats, well done.

    Cheers,

    Thanks WG. Was a fun setup and a bit of an experiment.

    Nice - I like it in this B&W too. I reckon you might be able to shave a little off the top perhaps?

    Thanks. Yeah, I shot this with high contrast B&W in mind (even had the preview on the back of the camera set to B&W).

    I might give shaving the top off a bit a go. I do like her face being on the 1/3 line however. I'll have a play around tonight and see how it looks.

    Nicely done, love the studio set up, I had one just like it. My battle though was the crop factor and the length of the studio. But focusing on a 3/4 portrait would fix that, I always feel compelled to shoot full length, another habit I need to break in line with my lighting style.

    Well done I'm envious.

    No worries, hopefully it's helpful

    Yeah, crop is a pain. I was shooting 3/4 with a 50mm for a lot of this. I'm pretty lucky though, the garage has doors on both ends, so if I want to shoot full length at 200mm, I can open one of the doors and get back further (temperature pending).

    Thanks, I love it too, I think I'll be using a similar setup again in the near future.
