I had the opportunity to photograph UWS Soccer player and Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited fitness model Hayley styled in Nike gear. Inspired by the movements and motion in Carlos Serrao Nike JDI campaign, I wanted to try my hand at it with my own personal twist.
For this shoot, the model was jumping on a trampoline to help extend the timing and height of her jumps. For the lighting set up I used a 3 light set up using the Paul C Buff‘s AlienBees™ Flash Units. On the key light, I had the 7″ Standard Reflector with a yellow gel to pop the skin tones of the subject. I had two back lights, aimed at the cyc wall, both behind the subject and one to the left and one to the right. The trampoline was set on the white cyc wall and I gelled the backlights to create the color gradients. I also played around with making one of the backlights a rim light to create some color on the subject.
As you can tell I love using Paul C Buff gear. Make sure to check them out and use my referral code REFTRF2018!
