New Lighting Tryout

After spotting Glyn Dewis's Lincoln-Sherlockesque Lighting Tutorial on his blog I decided to try and give it a go myself. I had to adjust a number of things seeing as how I have much older lights and no softboxes, but overall I think it came out pretty well. Especially for a first attempt. I wanted to adjust the light on his right (our left) a bit more, but the space precluded doing so.

Hannibal the Liar


I used a Bogen 4000, and Bogen 15000 for the lights with umbrellas, seamless "Thunder Grey" Background paper.

EXIF:

55mm (35mm equivalent = 82mm)
ISO 200
f/22
1/200 sec

Another from the same shoot where I had adjusted the lighting a bit. Again, it's a little brighter than I actually wanted and I may play around with it in PS a bit more lower the exposure to match the Glyn Dewis version, but as for my photo I like it that touch brighter.

Hannibal 2


EXIF:
68mm (35mm equivalent = 102mm)
ISO 200
f/16
1/200

I know most of you probably won't bother to (I'm horrible about clicking links too), but if you'd like to see the rest of the photos here's the link:

Re: New Lighting Tryout

Hello Ian,

I have planned to do something similar too, but still haven't got around to do it.
For me the first one is a bit too dark. I like the mysterious feeling but I think it misses a bit of light from our right, just a bit, from below maybe?
The second one is nice as well.

I did click on the link (lol) and I particularly like the one with the open deck of cards. Also I like the ones with the objects in the foreground.
Nice series!

Let me start off by thanking you for actually taking the time to comment.

I agree and disagree with you on that first photo. Personally I think it is a bit dark as well for my personal photography, but as my goal was to recreate Glyn Dewis's example, I think I got fairly close.
