Hi and welcome back.

Recently Mike Gracco, a student in Toronto who is studying to sing in the Opera, came in for a headshot sitting for a program he’s applying to at school.  He’s a baritone and a big guy to boot!

Here’s the original shot:

Here’s the finished shot after some post processing and cropping to the 8×10 format:

I light him with two speedlights.  Here is the lighting diagram:

Normally I set the snooted SB800 on the opposite side of the subject, but here I wanted just a touch of fill, hair, shoulder light on his right side.

It all came together beautifully, and Mike will be off to school with a headshot in hand.

Till next time, happy shooting!
