ELEANOR’S DESCENT – BEHIND THE SCENES + SHOOT INFO

I’ve really been inspired by underwater photography as of late.  While I do have access to an underwater case, Chicago’s frigid weather sort of limits our options (and sadly, I don’t know anyone with a pool). I had to improvise.

The following shot was setup as follows:

As you’ll notice this is a 3-light setup. With the model standing where the big beanbag is, I had a softlighter slightly overhead and in front of the model.  The strip box, though in the same position, was actually turned upsidedown and pointed upward towards the model (it was lower to the ground pointed up).  The strip was gel’d to a dark blue. The beauty dish was behind the model pointing down.  Lights are all Profoto.  Camera Settings: F5, 1/200, ISO 100
