Here’s a quick behind-the-scenes of a shoot I did last month. Some of the background was moved around after this initial setup shot, but the lighting pretty much stayed the same. I have three lights used here, all Alien Bees triggered with Pocket Wizards, to give the scene a simple, clean look. Here is the lighting equipment used:

  • Main light (right): ABR-800: Alien Bees Ringflash with 56″ Moon Unit
  • Second light (left): AB-800 with medium octabox
  • Background fill: AB-1600 with softbox

    Do you own all that gear? Or is there somewhere to rent it where you live?
