The setup

No, this is not a “setup” in the mafia kind of way. This is merely a lighting setup. Sorry to let you down. I was recently recruited to take head shots for a corporation. It was a fairly simple shoot, but I needed three days to settle on a backdrop. Something simple but smart was needed for the look – so I opted for a charcoal, non-reflective paper. That way I could manipulate the paper with lighting to help pop out the subject. This is actually just prior to the start of the shoot. I moved my lights in a bit more and pulled the backdrop all the way out to the stool. You can see one of my umbrellas peeking out from the right.
