We’ve got a couple of Grade 10 exchange students staying with us for the winter. Henrique from Brazil, and Moritz from Germany. Since they weren’t around to get their school photos at the beginning of the year, I thought I’d just grad a couple of quick ones in the studio. For kicks, I thought we’d do something more interesting as well.
I lit the guys with an Alien Bee B1600 with the stock 7 inch silver reflector on it. Another Alien Bee with an extra small softbox was used as a fill light to soften the effect of the hard main light. This is not something you want to do with someone much older than a teenager unless they have perfect make-up on.
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8
Lighting: Alien Bee B1600 x 2
If it seems that I’ve haven’t done any blog postings in a while, it’s that we’re in the shoulder season between winter and summer here and I’m not that busy. Alan at the Urban Pie toodled off to thailand for a long vacation as well, so I haven’t been doing much with those guys either. I’ve been filling my time with long walks with my wife, fixing some badly needed things on my pick-up truck, and finishing some wedding albums for clients, and generally goofing off. Come June, I get busy again for the summer season.
