First section: For this section using one simple studio strobe plus 7″reflector as the main light, and one silver reflector set at the left of the camera as fill, adjusting the space between model and the background to share the lighting of the model and background, a low key setting with the deep grey background fabric, the prop of the color veil increasing the mood, in post processing, take the function “High Pass” for enhancing the contrast and good for some images of split toning.
Second section: Using a glass window as the prop to get an effect of a raining day portrait a strobe set with a medium soft box plus egg grids as the main light for directing the light to the model a book prop is for the fun enhancement the idea is coming from the noted English photographer Gavin Hoey.
第三段：此段是採高光調 (High Key )打光共使用3只棚燈和1只閃燈，其中用2只200瓦棚燈為背景燈，1只750瓦棚燈為主燈，1只閃燈為輔助燈去除model眼睛及鼻下的陰影，背景燈加銀色柔光閃傘，主燈加雷達盤及柔光罩，閃燈則加小型條狀柔光罩及蜂巢網，主燈及背景燈比例是1:1分別為f/9，輔助燈減少1段為f/6.3，煙霧機噴霧增加趣味，幾張影像後製時與煙火影像合成使model能與背景相融合。
Third section: Working this section as a high key portrait, using total 4 lights as the lighting set up, among them 2 strobes 200 watt set as the background light, 1 strobe 750 watt is the main light at just high in front of the model, 1 flash set under the main light as the fill for removing the shadow under model’s eyes and nose, each background light has an umbrella for reflecting soft light, a beauty dish and soft fabric are equipped to the main light, as to the fill which is covering a strip light box and egg grid, light ratio for main and background is 1:1 as f/9 and the fill is 1 stop less as f/6.3, the smoke machine offers the fun purpose, some composite image use them in the post processing work flow.
