Bare bulb photo studio portrait (Profoto 250 Air)

This is the result of a portrait studio session I had a couple of weeks ago with a duo writing and illustrating a book about aliens and UFOs. My main goal was to produce some images with a lot of crazy colours and for that I tried a four light setup (test image here). More on those photos later.

I have found that most clients (in this case a publishing house) likes to get portraits in a couple of different styles if possible, so they can use one type on their web site, another on the blog or Facebook etc.

And why not? To create this simple group portrait, I just had to turn off all the lights except one which I removed the reflector from, and switch from a black background to a white.

Lighting setup and comparison to a Magnum reflector…
