I had the opportunity to photograph Los Angeles based fitness trainer Nic B. One thing I love about following her on instagram is that everyday she reminds you to shine your light! We all have many super powers but there’s nothing more rewarding than having a positive impact on someone’s life by simply being yourself and inspiring others to be there best selves in the process.
For the lighting set up I used a 2 light set up using the Paul C Buff‘s Einstein 640 watts Flash units. On the key light, I had the large 60″ Foldable Octabox high enough and far enough from the subject to light both the subject as well as the background. The rim light was behind a black v-flat (so the light from the octabox wouldn’t bounce back on the subject but create a shadow) but aimed at the subject to create a highlight on the the side of the subject.
