Lighting Study: Pallas Athena

Lighting study for the day - "Courture Pallas Athena" on the Marlies Dekkers website. The purpose of this study is to reverse engineer the lighting scene. Learning about different setups and techniques from industry professionals is how I have become a better photographer.

Key light: Large gridded parabolic umbrella camera left in front of subject (where she is facing)

Rim light left: Gridded strip box camera left behind subject

Rim light right: Maybe a bounce off a white wall or strip on the subject's left side, to give that slight edge along her left arm.

Other gear: Chilled fog machine to do the ground, probably a short 3 second burst, and a black background

Someone should tell them it's not called courture. It's called cosplay! :)
