Hi and welcome back.

Yesterday I went to the BH Event Space to present how to shoot 40’s style Hollywood Glamour with speed lights.

I love shooting and teaching this look as it is relatively easy to do with 3 small flashes and Rogue Flashbenders.

I also finish all my images in this style with Totally Rad Actions Portrait Retouch V2.

On to the shot!

Here is the BTS diagram.

All the flashes were fired the Phottix Odin Radio Trigger system.

Here’s a final from the shoot.  Originally I thought my model, Richelle, looked like Hedy Lamarr, but after this shot, I think she looks more like Sophia Loren.

Well, that’s it for now.

I had to cancel the second workshop of the day at the CCNY due to lack of attendance.  it was just as well for my model and her agency booked a casting for L’Oreal right after the event.  Good luck, Richelle!

Till next time, keep it glamourous!
