My clients wanted to get some Quince Photos in Miami at the Park. So, I said "sure, let's do it!"
First, we started with some really nice close up shots (as shown here). Why? Well, because 1. I always want to get some nice close ups. and 2. I always start with the close ups first, because the makeup is fresh, the hair is perfect, and it's always a good idea. (a little tip for all of the photographers that I know surf my page often).
The setup for this shot was a little over the top BUT.. the results are also nothing like what "most" photographers are even capable of (I know that sounds like an ego thing.. and I want everyone to know that it's not. I really do put on commercial productions for all the shoots that I do, and this is not what most people expect).
Anyway.. here we have a "clam shell" setup with the lighting. Basically, it's a beauty dish on a boom (above) in close REALLY close, and then I am using a "magic arm" to clamp on another beauty dish (bottom, aimed up) to fill in the shadows.. SO.. two "main lights". Then, I have two additional lights in the background as a kicker for the hair, and one of them is gelled with a CTO.
So, it's an insane setup.. BUT, when I am looking to create some of the best content possible, and at the highest level there can be no compromise.
