Two Light Executive Portrait – Photography & Video Tutorial

Code Canyon

From Jay P Morgan,

In today’s Slanted Lens lesson we set up on top of the roof of the East West Bank building in downtown Pasadena shooting a portrait of three executives. I wanted to get some unique portraits. I asked if we could get on the helicopter pad and shoot back at the Pasadena cityscape. It took some doing but we got permission. We were looking into the west so the setting sun was dropping into our shot. Adding strobes to light my subject, I balanced the sun and strobe light and made the sky darker by speeding up my shutter speed. We started shooting a one light portrait and then progressed into a 2 light portrait as the ambient light faded. The second light became our fill light to open up the shadows. Keep those cameras rolling and keep on clickn’.

    A little scary to see wind-catching softboxes on extended light stands on top of the roof with NO SANDBAGS to secure them! Yikes

    What a pile of total bullshit man.
    Overexposed sky's throughout. Just dreadful.
    Funny that you get it nailed it in the picture of you jumping.

    Why is there a triangle graphic with an eye at the start of the video?

    Question: If you were to go with high speed sync and no ND filter and lower the f-stop to get a shallow depth of field, would that have required some extra setup and changes in settings too much or can it be done easily?

    This was a great instructional video.  !!What lens did you use ? Only one lens or several. It looked like you were using a wide angle lens.
