End of May. Great crew, makup artists, hair stylists, assistants and models. Definite receipt for fun photoshoot:)Yes, it took me a while to edit the photos, but my day job is taking up more and more time, and also weekends…

I always try to give MUA and Hair Stylists some pictures for their portfolio, and tight portraits for that purpose would seem to do great job. So I brought the constant fluorescent light ringflash, which was perfect for makeup and hair presentation. Two things I had to take into the consideration:

  • color correction. Because the temperature of the ringflash, which was circa 5400K, I had to correct the color in post. It was pretty easy, thanks to X-Rite Passport
  • mixing flash light and constant light might be tricky. I used Mola Beauty Dish plugged into the B port of Elinchrom Quadra. I used 2nd port, because the A one was too powerful for me, yeah, I could probably use small flash – 580 EX II, but I had Quadra and Mola hookup already, and I didn’t want to spend time on another setup.

So Ringflash did pretty good job for main light, and Mola did the final touch for hair – it was slightly behind the model, camera right.

Then, we grabbed Elinchrom Quadra and Mola Setti and went around the building.

We were lucky to get out onto the rooftop, and this time sky was blue, sun was shining and I was fully prepared, meaning I had my ND filters with me:)– I’m going to write what I did to achieve that look in details at the end of the post.

You probably remember Lianna from earlier photoshoot, we shot on the same rooftop, but the conditions were slightly different. It was foggy and I was shooting available (!) light. Well, this time I had Kamila helping me out, and because I wanted to shoot somewhere around f2.8, I brought my ND filters with me. I used -3 stops Lee filter and Ranger Elinchrom to overpower the sun light. We cranked it up all the way to full power, so the recycle time took a second or so (I had slow recycle ON to save power on my pack), but it wasn’t that bad, and the pictures turned out pretty awesome:

Polecani bioenergoterapeuci - I and my buddies have already been examining the excellent tips and hints located on the blog while all of a sudden came up with a horrible feeling I never thanked you for them. Those ladies appeared to be stimulated to study all of them and already have without a doubt been having fun with them. Thank you for being quite helpful and for picking such high-quality information most people are really desperate to learn about. My personal honest regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.
