Silhoutte

Wow. I was surprised that this got such a positive reaction on flickr. I have done this type of thing with my son before. Makes a cool portrait.

It really couldn’t be easier to do. One light with a foam snoot. I set it on 1/4 power. I set the camera to max. sync. For me that is 1/250s. Apeture set to f5.6. That is always my starting point. I adjust from there.

This is taken in a lit room. But the room is f4 @ 1/25s or so. So I am way above ambient.

So the snooted 285HV is behind the subject slightly side-lit. Then you just turn the subject or move the light until you get the effect you are looking for.

Be blessed.
