About This Week’s Episode
This is the official light talk for the Foxy Hipster Pro Tutorial. In this Light Talk, we’ll discuss the Four Light Setup we used to shoot and create the Foxy Hipster Pro Tutorial.
The image, as usual, is the final image and not out of Camera. To start off we shot our model against a yellow backdrop. We used a four light setup and three poly boards to create the shot. To light up the background we placed two silver-inline umbrellas to either side. We placed a third umbrella more to the middle and higher up to make sure the background had an even spill all over. We didn’t use any diffusing material to make sure the background is evenly lit.
We placed two poly boards with the black sides to either side of the the model. This helps to create some contrast on both the left and right side of the model. For the front, we used a poly board placed to the front of the model, with a small octabox pointed directly at the model. We use these two in conjunction to ensure that the face is evenly lit from the front and the bottom when the light bounces off the poly board.
