shooting for @milancitymusic hip hop singer, we wanted a strong contrast an dark mood, somekinda creepy, so we set the location in a crave, abandonated train wagons inside a tunnel , no ambient light so the best choice was to put a AB400 in a stand inside the wagon to create fill, and a SB800 pointing to the black celling to lift up ambient just a tad, also there is a SB800 inside with snoot just backwards the subject to rim.
I used a pair of hi tech DIY cardboard striplights to create a white line in both sides of the subjet, i put a SB800 inside and just play arround with ratios and distances, to get that crispy feeling and shinny surfaces.
And finally i just used a ABR800 ringflash to fill , sometimes on axis and sometimes used as a beauty dish, this ringflash is quite good as beauty dish (off camera)
the shooting was set and i use to play whith distances and switch on and off some lights to get diferent looks.
here are the results, hope you like it, dont hetisate ask me if you ...
