Bob Davis shares a quick tip from this portrait shoot for using a Westcott Apollo Strip with the Grid and speedlites.The Speedlight camera left was in Group A manual mode 1/8th power with a Rogue Red Gel and 25″ grid and the main Speedlight was inside a Westcott Apollo Strip Soft Box with a 40″ grid in group B ETTL mode.The Strip Apollo used in this setup is a speedlite light modifier that is built on an umbrella frame making it very easy to setup. It measures 16″ by 30″ and gives off a rectangular catch light in your subject’s eyes. Most photographers bring strip lights from the side to use as a fill light, hair light, or a kicker light, however it can be used as your main source of light as well. All of the Apollos include recessed edges which helps give a more directional light source, and limited loss of light. For more direct lighting, the Apollo Strip can be paired with an optional grid to further focus the light.Portrait Shoot Gallery Photo Details and SpecsAperture: F5.6Shutter Speed: 1/60 secISO: 400Focal Length: 70 mmDate/Time: June 10, 2012Copyright Notice: ©2012, Bob DavisWestcott Lighting Gear in Action 16" x 30" Apollo Strip2337 40° Grid for 16" x 30" Apollo Strip2473 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.
