This lighting setup and final image was provided by photographer Jim Schmelzer. Jim used the Westcott Medium Scrim Jim overhead his subject so that there were no shadows on the football player, and that he could completely control the light that reached his subjects. Jim then used a 50″ Mega Apollo to fully light the football portrait.The Medium Scrim Jim Kit is a useful photography tool that allows photographers to diffuse light, reflect light, cut down light, or completely block light. With the variety of available fabrics, the Scrim Jim is one of the most diverse tools in the photography industry. In this video, Erik uses the Scrim Jim in a variety of ways to diffuse light and alter the light.The 50″ Mega Apollo featured in this setup is built on an umbrella frame making it very easy to setup. Measuring at 50″ inches, the Mega Apollo is the largest light modifier in the Apollo series, giving the softest output for speedlite photographers. The Mega Apollo is also large enough to enclose a small strobe unit, due to the open space inside. All of the Apollos include recessed edges which helps give a more directional light source, and limited loss of light.Football Portrait Shoot Gallery Photo Details and SpecsAperture: F4.5Shutter Speed: 1/250 secISO: 50Focal Length: 160 mmDate/Time: August 17, 2005 1:18pmCopyright Jim SchmelzerWestcott Lighting Gear in Action 42" x 72" Scrim Jim 1-1/4-Stop Silk1864 50" Mega JS Apollo2348 96" Scrim Jim Kit1819 10' Heavy-Duty Light Stand9910 Share this:Share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) You must log in to post a comment.
