Pic of the day

The pic of the day is a profile:

For this I used

  1. A camera set to “studio settings”: 100 ISO, 1/125th, f/8.
  2. A small flash aimed at the background, fitted with a Honlphoto grid and a Honlphoto purple gel.
  3. A flash aimed at the subject, also with a grid, from in front of her, slightly behind her from my perspective.
  4. Pocketwizards to fire the flashes.

If I leave out the front-of-subject light, I get a pure silhouette:

And if I do the normal studio stuff (I add a hair light, key light, fill light), I get this:


Thanks to my three student volunteers from my Sheridan College class.
