I got a 45″ light umbrella over the weekend in an effort to turn by small speedlight into a much larger light. I have my mini softbox, that did a great job, but I was thinking even bigger. I think this worked really well. I was able to really light my dad head to foot in these shots. I tried putting the light more to the side than I usually would on a person, just to accentuate the muscles a bit. I think it worked The one shot I really went nuts with the contrast but I think it looks very cool.
On another note, this is the PRE P90X shoot. We’ll have to do another after the 90 days. (I know, he’s got a pretty good starting point)
