Slow day today so I decided to play with my lights. I usually keep my lights pretty simple but after seeing a few videos of photographer Jill Greenberg at work on Strobist, I got inspired to experiment a little. So here is a portrait from start to finish.
The first set of lighting are two Nikon strobes that act as hard rim light.
The next light is a Norman 200b head with umbrella box that will provide the main light.
Another Nikon with a blue gel aimed at a thunder grey background.
The finished portrait with a little cleaning up.
The final image with some Photoshop to give it a Dave Hill sharpness to it. The whole image becomes a bit cooler (in temperature) and the highlights look metallic. Neat effect.
What it all looks like set up.
