Crazy Fourth

Published July 5th, 2012

In honor of mother America's birthday, the Phlearn team paid homage to the land of the brave by creating the most patriotic photographs ever seen. Armed with seven strobes, two leaf blowers, and a box of American flagsicles, we took to the Phlearn studio to take portraits reminiscent of famed photographer Jill Greenberg's unique style.



Three gridded stripboxes were used as hair and rim lights, while a large softbox paired with two gridded 7" reflectors served as the key and fill lights. A seventh gridded light was shot into red seamless paper to create the vivd background you see here. The key and fill lights were actually positioned lower than subject's eye level in order to better emulate Greenberg's style. By the end of the shoot, the floor was sticky with melted popsicles. We hope that you had as wonderful a Fourth of July as we did!
