What to consider when shooting on location.
Below Setup #1 : Two Elinchrom ELB 400 power packs with pro heads. The pro head on camera right has a frosted diffuser and the pro head to camera left using the 47″ Westcott grand soft box with the Elinchrom Translucent Deflector. I removed the outer diffusion of the soft box to give it a little more punch a crisper light.
Below Setup #5 Elinchrom ELB 400 power packs with pro heads. The pro head in back left corner of the image has a Elinchrom 7″ grid reflector with a 40′ degree grid. This is used to focus the light and give it a harsher rim light on the model. The head in the in the foreground(to the right of me) has a frosted diffuser.
|Camera Settings F/3.5 @ 1/50 ISO 125
The short flash duration of the Elinchrom Qudra strobes heads is what freezes the subjects while allowing me to shoot using a slower shutter speed. This allows me to take advantage of the available light and light the entire scene using only two strobe heads.
