A few readers asked about the “background post” of the other day – how was it lit?
- A softbox strobe as main light.
- An umbrella strobe (not pictured) as fill.
- And two speedlights: one with a Honl Photo snoot as edge light, and one with Honl Photo gel as background light.
- All manual
- One strobe and both speedlights fired with Pocketwizards; the other strobe with its cell.
That’s a very standard setup for me, and yes, you can learn to do this too.
