Sometimes, the simplest of set ups can be the most effective. In this video from world renown photographer Gary Fong, we see how to use two simple off camera flashguns, a snoot, some color gels and a plain wall to create a dynamic and interesting look for a photo shoot:
To set up his simple studio Gary does the following:
- He places one of the Canon flashguns low down in front of the wall and attaches his own brand Powersnoot attachment and a colored gel.
- He then sets the flash exposure manually via the slave unit to get a deep rich color from the flash on the wall.
- The second Canon flash is positioned to the right of the wall, high up on a pole pointing towards the model’s position.
- The model is asked to face towards the second flash light, or towards the camera.
The resultant images demonstrate how effective and dramatic this simple lighting set up truly is.
