Setting Up the Shot - Red Sierra 2

sierra red 2

Camera - Nikon D2X
Lens - Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S
Exposure - 1/250 @ f/7.1
Focal Length - 50mm
Lighting - LumoPro LP180, and LP160
Light Modifier(s) - Rogue XL Pro Strip Box
Trigger - Pixel Opas

Two light set up. The key light is a LP180 with a Rogue XL Pro Strip Box as the modifier to camera right. I feather the edge of the light to create a deep shadow on the opposite side o he subjects face.

The second light was a LP160 and was set up off to camera left with the flash head zoomed to about 105mm to create a controlled and slightly vignetted spot on the background directly behind the subjects head and shoulders.This second light was needed in order to create some separation between the subject and the background and to provide some depth to the picture.
