26th lightGIANTS Friday night shoot. 31.5.2013 – “Día de los Muertos”

In june it became darker, but at the same time also very colorful. Día de los Muertos was scheduled for tonight. Day of the Dead is an important Mexican holiday to remember the dead. Lots of people make up and wear dresses like the skeleton lady La Catrina. This time we wanted a special background and so we build a 2,40m x 2,40m frame which we decorated.

The first setup consited of a rectangular softbox above the model on the right side and a reflector down left to lighten up the neck area. Face and hair decoration are are well iluminated and we get a nice reflection on the background.

On the second setup we replaced the softbox with a beauty dish and a backlight reflector with color filters on the background. The reflector on the background creates a glow around the model. To get more individual photos we changed the color filter for every model.
