About this course
For this shoot, Sal uses a 1 light set up with the Profoto B1X and the Profoto Portable Beauty Dish. Sal will show you a before and after so you can see the difference in shooting with and without a strobe in this environment. The lighting in this shoot is used to fill Bella’s face and create a more balanced image vs blowing out the background.
The set up for this shoot is straightforward. Sal is working in an alley with open shade, but needs fill light to ensure that Bella’s face is not dark or underexposed.
For this scene, he will photograph Bella in multiple ways. First, he will photograph Bella with no movement to ensure he gets the shot he needs. Second, he will work with Bella to create motion with her dress. Finally, to create a more dynamic portrait, Sal and Bella will run through the alley while shooting.
The entire shoot is captured using the Profoto B1X and the Profoto Portable Beauty Dish.
