Back to the Studio. This dramatic image was shot using a vey simple lighting setup. Position 2 (45 Degree) single strobe, with a large grated softbox, models in front of a solid black backdrop created this eye catching atmosphere. We use Alien Bee strobe heads and control them with wireless triggers. This allows greater mobility to the photographer. Additionally, we like to immediately display the shot with an HD monitor. This gives feedback and encouragement to the models and allows us to fine tune the captures as they happen. A calibrated monitor ensures proper exposure and subtle adjustments of the lighting.
