Washington DC Advertising Photographer : Stephen Gosling Photography
This past summer I asked Jake if he wouldn’t mind helping me out with a shoot idea. And despite close to 100 degree weather Jake obliged. After taking some time off earlier in the summer I shot a couple of personal shoot ideas to get the creative juices flowing again; I highly recommend doing this!
So for our “Soccer-Man” shoot which I am retroactively renaming “The Player-Manager”:
For this shoot, 2 lights. Technically 3 if you include the sun. The sun is high and behind subject to camera left. A bare strobe with an orange gel is also high and behind subject to camera right. And finally we have a strobe with a silver beauty dish key-lighting our subject high, in-front and slightly to camera right. Photographed as always with Canon 5D3 and 70-200mm Lens. Settings; ISO 100, 1/200 shutter speed and f/13.
