Lighting techniques for figure works or fine art nude.
A fantastic techniques for dance. figure or fine art nude. This technique was shown by John Tisbury at the Bananastudio Fine art nude workshop a while ago. http://www.johntisbury.co.uk/
The techniques is very simple and uses 2 Lencarta heads with wide honeycoms or grids. The lights are placed either side of your subject at equal distance from the subject and at the same power settings.
I set the lights to give f8 at 100 iso.
I also used pixel king triggers to give me sync speed of 1/2000 sec in order to freeze the subject when jumping. Shot on Canon 7d with 17-50 mm Tamron 2.8 , also using Lencarta heads http://www.lencarta.com/
