A small gift from Vegas Vision Studios

Low Key Portriature Lighting Setup.

Background is black Duvatine

Model must be 4-5 feet from background to prevent key and fill lights from spilling onto background and lighting it.

What's the effect of putting the grid on the octagon softbox?"

It narrows the spread of the light to 40 degrees. You can do it without the grid but by using it you are better able to control light spill and wrap around


This is my favorite lighting setup. I just have to get that hair light mounted on my ceiling. Right now it is on a stand behind the background, which cuts into the depth of my room considerably. Thanks for sharing!


I love lighting diagrams! Thanks for the info and sample Bobby!
