Designer and photographer Rick Nunn of Lincoln, England utilizes two Westcott Apollo softboxes during this fashion portrait shoot in an old warehouse.First Shot of LeahIt’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a lit portrait, so I text my friend Leah & arranged something for today. I’ve had this location in mind for a while but hadn’t had the chance to use it. It was a good job. I had a torch with me because we couldn’t see a thing in there. We were pretty much shooting in pitch black, it made focusing a challenge but I still got a bunch of nice shots out of the evening.Behind The ScenesHonestly all the cheap softboxes I have used have been horrid, really terrible — fiddly to put up, fiddly to take down. The first portable/strobist softbox I have come across that I have really liked is the Westcott Apollo, and I mean REALLY liked! This thing owns! So here I wouldn’t recommend going cheap — if you really want a softbox splash out a bit, you can pick them up for about £120 & IMO they are well worth it. Also Westcott recently announced that they have a new distribution partner in the UK, so that should make it even easier to get their products.Second Shot of Leah Lighting Diagram Visit Rick Nunn’s website to view the full article.Equipment ListCamera: Canon 5D MkIILens: Canon 50mm F/1.4Flashes: Canon 580ex & 430exLight Modifiers: (2) Westcott 28″ Medium ApolloAccessories: 2 light stands, 2 light brackets, a tripod & RF-602 Triggers.Camera SettingsShutter Speed – 1/125thAperture – F/1.6ISO – 250.Westcott Lighting Gear In Action 28" Medium Apollo2334 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.
