Shooting Beauty With Home Depot Florecent Tubes
Photographer Benjamin Von Wong recently shot a hair dressing competition. Unlike the usual portable beauty setup which is comprised of a softbox or octabox and a few cards to bounce lights into the models face.
Ben took an interesting approach and used a set of homemade florescent fixtures from office depot. Interestingly he placed them all vertically to create some interesting catch lights (yes, florescent tubes make interesting catch lights) . The light produces was good enough for shooting at F5.6 over 1/125 @ISO 400 quite shallow. Hit the jump for the BTS video. and click the bottom link for full info and lighting diagrams.
