This is Bobby. Bobby is a model, actor and friend who needed some fresh imagery created so we spent a day together last month laughing and listening to angry rap music.
This was actually a great exercise for me as I don't usually shoot model comp card sort of things. I ended up pulling four lighting schemes out of my bag of tricks, that are apparently my go-to setups.
Octobank over forehead on charcoal seamless:
Daylight-balances flurescent tubes on either side of subject:
Single directional large umbrella with fill card:
Small gridded softbox up high:
It's nice to take a step back every now and then and realize that I'm super comfortable with strobes, and I barely ever rely on daylight anymore. In a weird way it's so much easier. Give me a shout if you're interested in getting on touch with Bobby for any projects.
