Ok, it’s time for little bit of portrait photography, again! 😉

I had a friend of mine available for shooting today at my place, and she was wearing this sleeveless hoodie. After we spent couple minutes to find the perfect pose, she came up with the one you see above! Btw, Tanja is a professional body paint artist, and you can check her work here!

Lights setup consisted of three Yongnuo YN-560III flashes. One on right side, as a key light, other over her head and third one was used to light the background a bit. I also added a silver reflector beneath, just to bounce little bit of fill light back on her.

As usual, you can check the BTS pic below for more info.



Camera and light settings:

  • Canon 600D @ 1/200 ISO 100
  • Canon EF 50mm f1.4 @ f4.5
  • 3 x YN-560III flashes (details in the pic below)
  • Triggered by Yongnuo YN560-TX manual flash controller
