Broncolor Mobil in high winds!

 

With the wind blowing from behind, and the setting sun placed right behind Lisas head to give some rim light, I then used 2 mobil heads high on stands to illuminate Lisa's face.  One of my favourite shots ... it looks warm but trust it me it was anything but! :-)

I had the second part of a portfolio shoot for a local singer the other evening.  As we were working to a tight schedule there wasn’t much of a chance to re-arrange so despite the very high winds we headed out on location.  For this shoot we decided to only take the Bron Mobil kit as the compact heads, and ringflash make it stable and easy to use despite the tricky conditions. For the purposes of this shoot we used no softboxes for exactly the same reason, and with a sandbag or two your lighting stands can be easily tethered down.  Anyway here are a few sample shots from the shoot.  These images haven’t been processed in Photoshop but have simply been run through Lightroom, resized at the time of exporting and sent to the client and uploaded here

 

A burst of flash from the ringlash with a setting sun to the far left.  Converted in Lightroom to mono with a strong contrast curve.

2 heads, set to 80/20 both to the left of Lisa, with the second lower power head being used to just slightly fill the shadows.  This was last light and one of the infal few shots of the session.

Single Bron Mobil head to left of camera.  Same position as the shot above but I moved to the right 90 degrees to bring more of the sunset into the frame.

A simlp[e shot of Lisa sat in the back of my car between shots.  Shot with the sun behind and 2 Bron Mobil heads.  I'll just finish this one off slightly in Photoshop to make it jump off the page!
