Looking for some tips on shooting athlete portraits. I have a mate who is competing for a world championship (boxing) and wants some shots while he is in good nic.

I want to emphasise their muscles and shape. This is new to me as I mainly shoot brides , beauty etc.

I am guessing some light coming from above would get you a bit of shadow to define muscles.... I am thinking flash high on a stand at 45 to the front and maybe a kicker from behind for some rim. I want to shoot it in the training gym.

Your suggestions would be much appreciated, as I have never done it.

I assume you have seen Mr.Big's thread Body Building, Fitness, MMA....

Start on page 3 if you have not looked at his work. In the earlier part of the thread he gives setup information but much of that is lost due to the Photobucket problem. There is some information on setups still in that thread. That is where I would start in your research anyway.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?
