Here’s how I took this shot in literally less than a minute….
1. Determine your background exposure and set your camera accordingly.
My settings were Sony A99, Carl Zeiss 24-70mm, F2.8, ISO 800 F2.8 1/25 at 24mm
2. Pose your subjects.
3. Light subjects with Killer Video Light through a shoot thru umbrella on a Strobe Stick with Big Boy Bar and umbrella mount. I adjusted the light to my taste. When camera can be set at ISO 800 and above, using a video light is one of the most efficient methods. Note: your video light must be powerful because when using a shoot thru umbrella light will be reduced by two stops. Make sure to use a fast lens at F2.8 or lower which will
When using the right techniques, it is very possible to use small portable lighting to create some Crazy Stupid Light!! Don’t be afraid to experiment. If you are interested in more learning opportunities please check out my World Tour.
