Weekend Photo Shoot
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of setting up in my living room to shoot some photos of my beautiful wife Kim, her friend Tisha and her husband Steve, and even get a new headshot taken – by Kim.
Find out more about the setup I used and check out a selection from the shoot after the jump…
It wasn’t a very complicated setup, actually. I unfolded my reversible 4’x6′ black/white fast-fold background – which I can never seem to re-fold very easily. I used my Nikon SB-600 speedlight on a stand about 3 feet to the left and slightly in front of the subjects. I placed a 3’x6′ Westcott Scrim Jim with a white surface in front of the light to act as a diffuser to soften the light. And that was just about it. One light, a diffuser, and a background.
This is the most I’ve ever used off-camera flash and I am pretty pleased with the results for my first time out.
And now, for the photos!
