So here’s my homage to one good light, one fast lens and a beautiful lady (eh hem, she’s my wife). Simple set up in the living room with a blanket hanging from the doorframe. One off-camera Canon speedlight (580 EX) and a 33″ shoot-thru umbrella. Canon 50mm prime set at f2.2. I have a little bounce (small light disk) on camera left to provide some fill. I think this baby just sings. And I think my babe is beautiful. Single umbrella, lovely lady. I’m a lucky dude!
One more of my buddy Peter – converted to black/white. (He’s also kinda cute) This one is shot at f2.8, I believe. Instead of a bounce card, I have a second fill firing at 1-2 stops under the key. All done in the living room… with a shoot thru umbrella and some light control.
