Spring Floral Editorial

Updated: Jul 27, 2018


Our concept for this Photoshoot, was a floral paradise. In preparation for this shoot, we went to Michaels and bought numerous floral pieces, accents, and wooden boxes to tie into the theme. The set up for the Photoshoot was held up by a portable Savage Universal backdrop stand. We attached the floral vines to the backdrop pole and arranged the loose flowers alongside and within the boxes. Collaborating with boutique, Versailles, we were able to use this glamorous floral gown. It definitely helped tie the theme together. The makeup was kept to warm neutrals and hair styled with romantic curls and pulled back. Below, you can see the completed set up.


Camera Settings: 1/200 sec, f/6.3, ISO 100


Key Light:

Main Light, Profoto D2, and a 27" Impact Lighting Beauty Dish

The main light here is set up at a low position, as the model would be sitting on the stool. It is facing downward, slightly above her eye level. On it is a 27" beauty dish and a grid. I used the grid to create mood and contrast to enhance the dress she was wearing.

Overhead Light:

Main Light, Profoto D2, and a 27" Impact Lighting Beauty Dish

This studio strobe, with a 7 foot parabolic umbrella attached to it, is showing how it is going to light up the model, as she's sitting on the stool. It is set up high enough to light the model and most of the setup. I attached the white diffuser on it to soften the scene over and around her.

Fill Light:

Fill Light, Profoto B1, and a 20" Impact Lighting Beauty Dish

This light I placed to the side of the model, and put a grid on it so no light was to spill onto the set and completely focused it at the model. It was used as a very subtle fill of light, and not intended to create a strong rim light. I had the power of the strobe low enough to simply fill in the shadows.

Background Light:

This fourth and final light was to add more dimension to the background setup. I placed it high above the set to give more 'light' to scene and bring out even illumination to the setup as a whole.
