Today’s capture is a quick-n-dirty test shot of myself I did in the studio with two of my new lights. These lights are more powerful than my other lights and offer MUCH more adjustment.

For this shot I have a 24×36 softbox right of the camera for the main light and a 40″ umbrella behind as fill. The hairlight (which missed it’s target a bit) is a snooted monolight in the back left. This is my standard portrait setup. I usually start with this arrangement and then deviate from there depending on the look I want.

Canon 5D, Canon 24-105 f/4L lens – 1/125 second, f/10, ISO 100
