With a little time on my hands I decided to test out a few lighting techniques. For this shot I attached a Lumodi 14” Beauty Dish to a 580EX II Speedlite and placed it slightly to the left and above me. I also placed a 30” silver reflector to my right to bounce a bit of light on to the right side of my face. This simple setup worked well to create some really nice shadows and highlights on my jacket and it didn’t create any reflection off of my glasses.
Final stylization was done in Perfect Effects by onOne Software.
