Pasta Shoot: Behind-the-Scenes

By | 2016-12-18T17:01:27+00:00 December 2nd, 2009|9 Comments

Here’s a quick “behind-the-scenes” photo of a pasta shoot I did this afternoon. My main light was diffused window-light, with some fill light from a Nikon SB-800 speed-light to the left, softened with a shoot-thru umbrella. I also used a large silver reflector to bounce some of the light in to fill the background. I used a PocketWizards to fire the speedlight, but removed the one from my 7D to capture the BTS image.

    Intended or not, it’s a great lesson. I would love to see more behind the scenes stuff. A photo of the setup, brief description, that’s all that’s needed! Brilliant!
