As a lighting newbie I am always amazed when people can look at a photo and know how it was lit. So before anyone responds let me take a shot...

Looks like a single light on the subjects left (camera right) and elevated a bit with a hair/rim light back and on the opposite side.

I would wait for confirmation from an expert before you ran with it. :)

This shot is very simple man...there is absolutely nothing difficult about it. Looks like they had a softbox to camera right and pretty much in front of him. Then one other light (could have been shot bare) to camera left and behind subject for rim lighting.

More important though: Please don't post images you don't own. Link to it instead.

It's that whole copyright thing... ;)

Especially when it's from a professional sports league. They're a very litigious bunch... ;)

Be 6'5" and 250lbs with a 45" vertical leap... then those lights just follow you around... no extra lighting necessary.

looks like a 2-light setup to me. big softbox at camera right, pretty much almost in front of the subject, and a bare strobe at camera left, probably behind just at an angle.


Canon 7D / 50D / 30D / SL1 / XT

My photography-related addiction makes a crack habit look like a fiscally responsible pasttime.

This is how I imagine it. Something like the left but the hair light on the other side. My program won't let me flip it :o. Or is it like the right? I can't tell. I'm new at this still.

there are almost specular highlights on top of his shoulder, ear and arm from the hair light.
That indicates to me that it is probably right over his head.
The main and back kicker are almost opposed with the main about 1 stop hotter.

I think it's a three-light setup...softbox camera right, another smaller one camera left (look at his right arm), and a hairlight, probably a strip light above and behind.
