Photographer Leo Rosas wanted to create a Halloween inspired golf themed photo. And what better way to make to have Jason Voorhees (from friday the 13th) slash away at an innocent golf player?

With the final results quite fitting this weekend, Leo was king enough to share both the lighting setup and the photos before and after retouching. This is a quick before/after/lighting setup article that should be a valuable resource for getting some insight on how photos are made.

The entire shoot was planned around available resources with the models being friends braving the cold weather. And post production done by retoucher Michael Ramtharder.

Gear used

Golf Player Portrait

For the close portrait of the Golf Player I used a Elinchrom Quadra with standard reflector placed from camera right for a big contrast (45 degrees angle to get that nice “Rembrandt triangle”)

 

Jason’s Portrait

For Jason’s portrait we did a similar setup with umbrella but from above for drama and softer light quality

 

Playing scene

For the playing scene where Jason approaches the golf player, I decided to add a little light paint effect with the use of the continuous light from the ELinchrom Quadra and triger the flash on rear courtain to freeze the subjects.

The speedlights where quickly placed in different positions to add some information on the trees and on the mini golf court. (sometimes even on the ground in a very rough way to just obtain that bit of information that would help us working our the images in post

 

 

Resumen

In resumen, the Quadra was our main light and the speedlights were a fill in light for the place. All this was possible thanks to the team work with Michael Ramhardter who is a great friend of mine and we both planned the shoot from the beggining, so we both were 100% aware of when a speedlight placed roughly on the ground would be helpful enough for our purposes
