Backstage at Florida Fashion Week..
Last week, I had a great time working with the crew at Florida Fashion Week in Naples, FL. There were many awesome people involved, including some talented models. I made it a point to make creative, beneficial portraits of these models while backstage, and did so using a lightweight, simple setup. With a little direction, we made these images:
Now, about that lightweight lighting setup (if you want to know)... Everything above was lit with one speedlight, mounted inside a Saberstip modifier. The Saberstrip has become one of my go-to modifiers. Portable, durable and awesome light control. It also looks cool.. much cooler than an umbrella (sorry umbrella).
Here's one of my backstage setup shots. Note - There are two strips in the following photo (L Shape Setup), only the top light is being used.
And this is what it looks like..
Thank you again to the team at Florida Fashion Week.. and to the great models. I enjoyed working with you all.
Till next time,
