I like the 1/4000 shot for the smoke but the 1/2000 shot for the background lawn. I always have to look through your shots, Martin...good stuff for a newb like me trying to learn!!!! Thanks for posting!!!

Ed

Looking back I would have needed a back light for the smoke to really pop. I'll have to try that next time (with a reflector maybe).

Very best,

Outstanding! DThriller. Even your "behind the scenes" look better than most "front scene" :P

This is a great thread. Thought I would add some simple setup and not that impressive results.

Shoebox pinhole camera.

Okay, no gear is hanging into the frame, but you might be amused by these outtakes I just found from an old shoot. In the middle of dialing up the area fill, we apparently needed a wardrobe check. :) Key is a Profoto Magnum (13" dish) at 9' elevation. Fill is a (shielded) bare bulb @ 1000J lighting up the space.

Heya,

Two setups, trying to see which I like best.

Rovelight 600B (in HSS mode, at 1/4 and 1/2 power where noted)
Yongnuo YN622c (on camera & one via pc sync cable on Rovelight)
Cheetahstand Boom Stand + Counter Weight Bag (Water bottles in there)
36" x 24" cheap Neewer White Reflector on generic Impact stand with clamps as a bounce surface
Canon 5Dc + Tamron 90mm F2.8 VC @ 1/2000s F2.8 ISO 100 for all shots.
Ambient was less than Sunny 16, it's over cast. Was easy to knock down ambient with 1/2000s.
Fotodiox EZpro 48" Octa (1)
Impact 60" Silver Lined Black Backed Umbrella (2) (used as a bounce surface)

***************

Setup 1:

48" Octa Softbox (everything else the same as mentioned above).
Rovelight at 1/4 power in HSS.
1/2000s, F2.8, ISO 100.

60" Umbrella (bounce surface) (everything else the same as mentioned above).
Rovelight at 1/2 power in HSS.
1/2000s, F2.8, ISO 100.

***************

Overall, I feel they are quite similar in terms of light. I get more spread and wrap and more surrounding area covered in light with the 60" umbrella as a bounce surface, which would make sense. The 48" Octa gives more light for the power setting, and controls spill better so that only where it's aimed is exposed. Noteworthy difference in foreground shows that difference pretty well.

I think the 60" bounce produced more light from the reflector, I can see it giving a rim. So the extra spill from the 60" bounce source worked there. I don't think the reflector did much of anything with the Octa, because of poor placement for where it is, but since it's so directed it would have been hard to place without an assistant.

The question is... is the subject light that much different?

Edit: Looking back I should have had the key light camera left to better light the pipe, smoke, etc. Derp! Next time. Could have moved the reflector closer too, quite a bit.

Very best,

You know I'm no pro, but I think I see more modeling in your shirt with the box than I do with the umbrella. But, maybe I'm hallucinating? :)

The shadows under the chin are a little less pronounced with the umbrella. I tend to like that image more although a little more fill to better show the jaw line would still improve it in my opinion.
