The Setup

The idea here is for a very edgy, dramatic-looking lighting setup, and it’s a perfect one to use for shooting athletes. The main lights are actually the two strip banks in the back—they provide the main lighting for your subject. The beauty dish in front (without a diffusion sock over it, so the light is punchier) is being used just as a fill light, so we power that light down real low.
