So here it is. More secrets revealed. Feel free to post a donation to my PayPal acct :)

Some people have asked about the lighting for this shot

Here is the setup with the explanation

Note: Light meter makes it all very easy.

I still have lots to learn! I love to try new setups and figure out where I went wrong and what I can improve upon.

When I first joined this site, I tried to reach out to a few photogs and ask what the set up was and how they did what they did, but with little response. I thought it was rude and selfish for them not to share. I thought thats what this site was about, afterall there are tutorials posted here.

Hell if the true pros like Mcnally and such post their setups why shouldn't an amateur like myself?
So I am glad to see that the setups I post are helpful to someone in some way. Just the same as I enjoy seeing how others setup their shots, always good info!

You might be able to do it with less, but I dont know how you would.

Possibly the 2 back lights can be positioned higher and pointing down catching the top of his head and just one in front. Somehow i dont think you would get the same effect.
