Two weeks ago, Scott had a meeting with DJ Overflow from Mad Heads Movement at the lightGIANTS Studio. The aim was to create new promotional and profile pictures.
Since there was a need for a helping hand, I joined the shooting and supported Scott both as an assistant and with some ideas. And now let us show you some results (some with setups).
The first Image was a very classic portrait. We chose a pretty unusual setup. Two flashes into softboxes as keys on one side, two reflectors at the opposite side for the filling.

The following setup was a spontaneous idea. Because Mario had brought nearly his entire equipment we decided to place some of his records as a music floor.

The next setup was a DIY solution. We have used a beauty dish as a key light and had the idea to change the reflection in the sunglasses more in the direction of a ring flash. Therefore we used a record and attached it in the middle of the beauty dish (see the image below). We were pretty satisfied with the results.

In the beginning we all share the desire for our own studio ...
We've known us for some years through our joint activity on flickr.com, an international photo platform, and the local "Flickr Klub Karlsruhe" group.
All together we are ambitious photographic artists from the area of Karlsruhe.
Then, when suddenly through an unforeseen circumstance a potential location was available, everything went reletiv quickly. Without further ado, the room was inspected, we adapted the ideas and conditions and on June, 14th 2010, the lightGIANTS were founded by Thomas Reimann, Scott Lewis, Markus Wochele and Stefan Janeschitz with our own photo-studio.
From then on was first: set up and renovate the room.
You will find some posts about this on our blog.
