Canon 17-35mm L series at 24mm
Why these settings? I wanted the background to come out and not over expose.... and as you can see it was a dull cloudy yet bright background. So I closed down on the ISO and shutter and pumped up the light output to match the background as much as possible.
2 Interfit S1 strobes
•Key light is the S1 with foldable Beauty dish w/ diffusion.
•Fill light is the S1 with foldable Octabox w/ diffusion
Here's the original
Above I added a filter in Lightroom and a little skin smoothing retouching to achieve the final look below. The Las Vegas National Golf Club was nice enough to allow us to shoot on their property, so I thought it would be fun to do some promo shots they could use from our shoot. Here I incorporated their sign, and used a wide lens to achieve the look.
This was really easy to set-up with the portable S1's that have a build in battery pack and need no external power. And if you have not checked out Interfit's foldable soft-boxes, your life will change forever shooting on location with these easy to set-up modifiers.
