Tifa at Tuff Gong Studio

About a week or two ago, I got an assignment I was looking forward to do. I’ld be photographing Two of the Digicel Jamaica brand ambassadors, Tifa and I-Octane. I thought I’ld share one of the photos from the shoot and a quick n dirty run down of how it was done.

Tifa Tuff Gong Photoshoot

Two light setup. Main light left about 3 feet, modified by an umbrella to light the subject. Second light bare off to the left maybe 8 feet, directed at the Flag. Looking back at it i should have either gridded or snooted to control that light some more so as to not light outside of the flag area.

In all honesty I cant remember my flash power and shutter speed’s etc at the moment, So i hope you guys aren’t “measurebators”, who revel in the technical and cant see the art in anything.

In regards to the posing of the subject this one was actually suggested by the reporter that accompanied me for the assignment. This is why ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; it is EXTREMELY important to listen, never think your too good to learn from someone irrespective of them being in your field or not. because quite frankly I really liked the feel of this image compared to the other ones that were all done by me, While most wouldn’t admit it I feel no shame in doing so.

Anyway I’m off to my next assignment, so until next time.
