Last year, when I taught my flash workshop in Toronto I was joined by David Honl, of the excellent range of Honl modifiers I use. We set up a shot like this:
- Background light with a short snoot;
- Two gridded side lights (1/4″ grids) aimed forward from slightly behind;
- One light on camera with a Traveller 8 softbox
- All fired with Pocketwizards.
That looks like this (with Dave on the right):
And the resulting shot is this:
Now you know how those shots are done!
