Hi and welcome back.
I’ve been commissioned by the law firm of Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder to do a large group photo of the managing partners.
Shooting in office spaces poses a lot of technical challenges: warm tungsten light, bad overhead light, slow shutter speeds for ambient light, and high ISO’s.
I met this challenge head on by bouncing all of my light around the room.
Here’s my setup:
One SB900 with 1/2 CTS gel for a bit of backlight
One Profoto 300ws monolight with a 1/2 CTO gel pointed into the corner to bounce light around the room and turn the room into my softbox.
I shot tethered to my laptop so the art director/marketing manager could view the images and make corrections as we went.
Here’s a setup shot:
And here’s an initial proof:
They wanted something casual and somewhat formal: not the stodgy lawyer shot.
It was a great and fun group to work with. I’d like to thank them all for being patient and having fun with me.
That’s it for now. Till next time, happy shooting.
