Getting ready to do a lookbook shoot this weekend for a designer. A bit worried since I haven't seen much improvement in my work in the past year and I swear I'm about to crack if don't start getting even a little closer to the results I'm dying for. Anyway, enough about me my artistic plateau that no one cares about. When I was digging the other night for some inspiration, I stumbled upon Rankin Photography based out in the UK, some of you may be familiar already? http://www.rankin.co.uk >>The Photo http://www.rankin.co.uk/portfolios/fashion/037%204627%206%20028%20F3.jpg After seeing this, I knew this was the quality of light I wanted and I knew I wasn't going to get near it with any of my Alienbees gear (no offense to Alienbees) without a lot of post, if even. If anyone wants to argue that, I'm open ears. My first guess was a broncolor ringflash with a soft diffuser, but since the shot is so evenly wrapped with light my second guess was a huge parabolic that I can't afford. Today, I went ahead and reserved my rental for a 5' Profoto Giant Silver 150 (closest thing I could get that was available for the date I needed) with matching heads, stands, sandbags, and a 1 stop diffuser to soften the light. I must say thats the quickest 200 bucks I ever spent. Going to have to sell the Xbox maybe =| So with that all said,... comments, suggestions, feedback, hate mail, alternative guesses?
