Setting up the Shot - Landon 4
Camera - Nikon D300
Lens - Nikon 50mm f/1.8
Exposure - 1/2000 @ f/1.8
Focal Length - 50mm
Lighting - Nikon SB900
Light Modifier(s) - 60" Westcott bounce umbrella
Trigger - Nikon SU800
This is another shot that uses high shutter speeds with Nikon's CLS system. You can read more about this in my article on the Nikon SU800.
These fast shutter speeds allow the background to be eaten up by shadows, and shooting this way allows you to shoot in just about any location and get this same effect just like this one taken again in our living room.
For the key light I used a Nikon sb900 shot into a Westcott 60" bounce umbrella above and to camera rightpointed down at a pretty steep angle.
