Powerful Two-Light Location Set Up

posted in: Family, Lighting, Teaching | 0

Today I want to show you a simple but powerful two light set up for location. The image is of a Mother and son looking at a book together in a nice master bedroom. Main light is an Elinchrom 600 ws Strobe with the 53″ Junior Octa my favorite soft box. The second light is a second Elinchrom 600ws unit with a standard reflector placed behing them to the right pointing up in the pitched ceiling. Look closely at the two slim detail crops and see all the second light does! It back lights, lights hair, over all fill lights in addition to lighting up the room evenly. Often simple ways make things look great. I did bring a carload of different lights, never know what you might want and need. Hope your summer is great. For us it has been the second busiest July in my 34 years as a Photographer. Not second most profitable, but second busiest 🙂

Main light only, Elinchrom 600 ws Strobe w/ the 53″ Junior Octa my favorite soft box.

Main light + second light a Elinchrom 600ws unit with a standard reflector placed behind them to the right pointing up at the peiched ceiling.
