Softbox Dilemma

I always have problems getting the softbox together. Lucky for me my model Amber Flowers knew exactly what to do with it. Shot on Hasselblad digital and Broncolor lighting.

Not Typical BTS

Not your typical behind the scenes setup, except maybe for me. Shooting the board of directors for the Palm Springs Air Museum in front of two aircraft, showing both fully and the sign on the hangar. Two rows of 19 people sitting and standing. And very simply it came out perfect. Will show the final photograph when it is released. Could not be happier with the results!

Lighting was the Broncolor 1200L Move, Broncolor Para 133 and a Broncolor Octabox for  some fill. Had to balance it all out with the Sun in and out of some overcast, low behind me to my right. Camera was a Hasselblad H4D-40 with the Hasselblad HC 50mm lens.

Everything was all set up and ready to go before anyone got there. I shot 12 frames in succession in no more than two minutes.


Posing In Black At Bombay Beach

Posing in black on Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea with Xtine. Behind the scenes in our photo shoot.


Xtine The Photo From the BTS Video

My Bombay Beach photo shoot at the Salton Sea with model Xtine. Yesterday I shared a behind the scenes video of her posing here at this spot. This is one of the photos from that “take”.

The Sun was intense and almost directly behind her. My lighting was a Broncolor white beauty dish held by my assistant pointed 45 degrees to her from her right. It was powered by the Broncolor 1200L Move pack. I like the beauty dish out there to withstand the winds and for the power.

The camera is my Hasselblad H4D-40 with the Hasselblad HC 100mm f/2.2 lens. Without question my favorite Hasselblad lens.

Windy Modeling

Some more posing behind the scenes with model Xtine at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea. The BTS video here was not lit. Sun directly behind her. Lighting the photo shoot was with a Broncolor white beauty dish held by my assistant with a Broncolor 1200L Move pack. I was using a Hasselblad digital camera system.

Note the very windy conditions. I have seen photographers bring soft boxes and umbrellas out here for light modifiers and try to put them on light stands. Not a good plan. The wind just turns that stuff into kites.

Another point is having a model who can pose without being micro-managed. The model will not be able to hear you over the wind noise. So your discussion of posing will all be between “takes”.
