Setup a “a single light stand” … in the hotel? …One particular Light Photography

24

SmokingStrobes.com – Now why doing it on the floor when hotels are usually known for their comfortable king-sized double beds? Because this time, we wanted the photographs to look like studio photos. For our one light photography we manufactured a black floor by covering the floor with the black covers of my two collapsible reflectors. This gave us nearly 4 square meters of black ground. Sounds too small? Well, then let’s use the American way of saying it Nearly 45 square feet of black floor – sounds much better ­čÖé As you might guess, in order to light such a spacious “arena” one speedlight… is plenty – an easy one light photography setup.

    hi there´╗┐ ­čÖé is there a speedlight used “on camera” here? or its only the one behind the model?

    Very informative and cool use of on camera´╗┐ flash.

    I expect the infrared´╗┐ beam to pass through the umbrella (only in the reverse direction of the flash light) in order for the flash on the camera to control the “stage” flash

    was your´╗┐ on camera flash firing? or was it just controlling the 580 ?

    Thank you thank you. The note about having two drops is important and so not planned well because I am often so focused on the foreground details and don’t really know how´╗┐ to create a background trail into the dark. A model does not have to be spot centered every time–what a concept.

    sure, but what would be a specific question you would like to have answered in the vid? Can you post the question somewhere on my blog SmokingStrobes? Then I am quite sure I’ll pick it´╗┐ up in a video
