Photography

Red or Black


These images are from our Studio and were intended for a “Shoe” Photo assignment at Digital Photography School http://tinyurl.com/4va6sbq

We used a large grated Softbox and a fill umbrella, each equipped with Alien Bee Strobes http://www.alienbees.com/ and controlled by a Cactus wireless trigger (these are significantly less expensive than a Pocket Wizard http://www.pocketwizard.com/ but occasionally don’t fire).

 You can tell the positions of the lights by the “Catch Light” on the shoes – you can apply the same trick to guess portrait lighting in a model’s eyes!
