I’m a photographer that loves to plan the shoot from scratch. Pre-production is one of the things I enjoy the most.It’s not every time that I get to do it, like it happened couple weeks ago on a “pussy cat dolls” shoot. When I got to the location they told me I could use a room with a red wall, that was it. Luckily I found a cool stool that added some caricature to the place. To add a little spice I decided to go for a more dramatic lighting, to kind of set a mood to the shots. When doing series, I tend to keep the same feel to every shot so when you put side by side they complement each other.So let’s brake down the lighting:3 – Alien bees B8001 – silver reflective umbrella1 – softbox 30″x60″1 – 7″ reflector with a 20 degree spotHere is the lighting set up:The softbox was my main light, the umbrella was used to give a not to hard edge light to the face and help creating a 3D look. Last but not least, the 7″ reflector with a 20 degree spot to separate the girls from the background. I used a Canon 5D Mark 2 with a 24-70mm 2.8.Here are some of the shots I liked the most:
