You can use the same setups for speedlights with umbrellas and beautydishes with adapter.

And if you look to the lower right, says photo+draft... Gives you a really NICE schematic for each scene.

I'd like to ask a question about the setup... It is pretty involved but all the action appears to be taking place around the subject & the lights to the left/right... I'd like to know:
1. if the black cardboard is listed to show how you masked/blocked the light coming in from the windows on the left.
2. How much, if any impact would there have been if the natural light had not been affected?
3. What us the distance from those windies & the subject?

I ask because I shot in a small studio using Alien Bee 800s however the room also has the same type bulbs that I use in my digital darkroom.  Those bulbs have no affect on the studio lighting & they are in the ceiling, less than 3 feet away from my subject.

These are computer graphic simulations using a very accurate renderer.

A common approach

Flat to the floor

Beyond flat. Actually away from the model.

Extreme feathering.

...from an old thread I had made:

Thought it might make a good addition to this thread.

Very simple, but beautiful.
What grid did you use?

Hey,

1. Yes, Cardboard - blocked out the sun
2.  I only want to be absolutely sure that there is no other light than my flashlights. Sunny day... sometimes the sun came thru the windows. Think it wouldn't affected the image exposure too much - but that floor (white) bounced sunlight sometimes wrapping UNCONTROLLED around the models face (affecting the right side ... like a little fill light). And if there is light... i wan't to control it wink
3. 3meters

Best
Tom


Update:
Another reason was, that i blocked it out because i used negativ fill for the right

Here are the two lighting setups I used for a shoot last Sunday. I own a light meter but don’t use it too often.  I shoot tethered into canon’s software and use the histogram.

I use  brx500s on the background and 600rxs in front.  For the low key shot, the background lights are on full power.  I added a second internal diffuser right in front of the flash tube to reduce the hotspot there.

For high key, the background lights are near minimum power. My studio space is only 10’ wide so I light the background with 80in strip boxes perpendicular to the background. Sometimes I use a black v-flat but the, in these Images I did not.

I use Westcott 84in umbrellas and fotodiox softboxes and beauty dish.  Lenses used were canon’s 70-200mm is II and a canon 50mm 1.2 on  a full frame camera.

A favorite that's growing on me, and among the easiest of all time.
