  1. hi guys,
    first i appologise if that's wrong forum for such a question, however i believe here i can find many experienced in studio (and also natural) lighting photogs... i came across this photo:
    and i'm wondering (can't really figure out) what lighting was used to create it... it looks like it could be done with strong natural backlight and reflector in front, however i can see some rectangular shape in his sunglasses that gets me confused, and it looks like it could be a few big softboxes... so i would like to know what's your take on it.
    thanks and regards,
  2. Looks like "two" reflectors, one on each side, in front of a north facing window, (northern hemisphere).
    Look at the highlight's on each side of his nose.

    To me it looks like natural light behind with a large softbox on each side of him.
