A Favorite From Today's Shoot with Westcott

Here's a favorite shot from today's shoot with Westcott.

I am here in Toledo, Ohio shooting a bunch of videos for Westcott University. My videos will be up in a few months.

For now, to light this scene I used a Westcott Rapid Box 26" Octa as my main light (to camera left) and a Westcott Rapid Box 10x24" Strip as a hair light. These relatively new soft boxes offer rapid shooting for me, who is known as the "shoot and scoot photographer."

I used daylight fill-in flash to get a good exposure of our model and to capture the outdoor scene behind our model. My Canon 600EX RT speedlites were set to ETTL; my Canon 5D Mark III camera was set to the Manual exposure mode.

To add to the mood of the setting, I used the Duplex Filter in Nik Color Efex Pro. For a great deal on ALL the Nik plug-ins, click here.

I can't wait to see the videos - and for you to see the videos. Lots of how-to info, including camera settings.

For now, if you'd like to learn more about light, check out my classes on Kelby Training.

Explore the light,
Rick
