Hi and welcome back.
Shooting corporate on location always provides challenges to you lighting setups. You normally don’t get a big conference room or office to work in, you normally get the overcrowded conference room, small office, or even a hallway in which to work. This provides you with some challenges to overcome to light effectively.
Yesterday I was shooting on location in Bridgeport, CT. My client wanted white backgrounds. So I brought along a white seamless and a background stand. Once I got into my room, that plan went out the window. But, as a quick alternative, I used the white wall instead of my seamless paper.
The conference room was small and filled with chairs. Even after I moved all the chairs, it was still a small, cramped space.
Here is a proof from my shoot:
Here is how I shot it.
You can see my overall setup:
Key: SB910, Godox S-Mount bracket, Bowens 20×30 softbox
Fill: California Sunbounce Micro Mini, Silver Side
Back: 2 SB800’s, each with a large Rogue Flashbender as flags. The light on the left is A-Clamped to the bookcase as there was not enough room for my lightstand.
These are the challenges you need to be prepared for when on location. Fortunately, I had everything I needed in my bag, including extra A-Clamps.
Saturday’s workshop in Stratford, CT is a go. If you are interested in attending, just use the Paypal link on the top of the page. I’ll post all the details tomorrow. We’ll be shooting beauty and a bit of glamour creatively with speed lights and a beauty dish, the softbox above, and just grids.
Don’t hesitate to join in the fun, just join in!
Till then, happy problem solving!
