Hey everyone,

In this video, I take you behind the scenes of a 2 light, clam-shell lighting set up.

The top light is a Paul Buff Einstein E640 with a white Mola Demi 22 inch white Beauty Dish.

The bottom light is another Einstein with the Joel Grimes Westcott white 22 Inch Beauty Dish.




Camera is a Canon 5D MK III with the 135 F2 lens at F4.

If I could shoot this again, I would probably use the Canon 100 mm lens...

I found the 135mm lens made the Model's face look a little wider and flatter than it actually is.

Nice, though the lighting gets a bit lost in these wide shots. Clamshell is best illustrated in headshots imho.

Yes, you have a good point there.

Thanks for the feedback.
