Have you looked at your business or corporate portraits recently? Big fan though I am of location and editorial style portraits. sometimes a business needs a neutral background for their marketing – press releases, director bios and website images. If you’re a business in London, Kent or the south east that would like to have a chat about the options available (studio, location or documentary) do please get in touch or have a look at timstubbings.com. It can be at your offices or other place or work and can be used for a variety of purposes : Linkenin, websites, annual reports and brochures.
Here’s the technical bit. Whilst these can and used to involve some very elaborate lighting setups, I’ve shot a number recently where it’s been simplified – one light on grey (a close in softbox as an overhead light bouncing light from a reflector; a softbox close in at 45 degrees and a grid backlight for hair / the wall / a kicker; one light for the wall (reflector with barn doors) and one for the front (softbox). A beauty dish on rare occasions but be warned that the specular highlights and increased contrast might not suit a range of faces, skin types etc. Examples below!
