Lighting Workshop - Tom Jewett Photography

"ESPN" lighting -- dramatic for male portraits but unflattering to women. Two slim soft-boxes from back sides, shielded from camera with black panels; fill light from in front.

I was actually the "model" in this setup for the rest of the class, "thanks" or "no thanks" to missing hair on the sides. A fellow student was kind enough to sit in for me while I took this shot -- in real life he's an MD pediatric trauma surgeon!
