A quick preview of a shoot today. Challenging on a number of fronts - I was concerned with getting the exposure right so as to retain detail in both the dark and light areas of fur. It was also more than tricky getting dear Benj to stay the right place without the owners hands on him!
I lit Benj with a 70cm gridded silver beauty dish camera left - this gives a directional punchy light and pleasing catchlights in the eyes. I also had a gridded reflector shooting in from behind Benj on camera right to assist separation from the background.
