Arty in the park
John Hillman, for an article in the Sunday Times about savings and pensions. Another scenario where there is no real picture story, so the important thing is to inject a little interest wherever possible. A nearby park where John walks his dog was the spot I chose.
I’ve become aware of the Online Lighting Diagram creator, and so have gamely included my setup. I’d picked a spot to shoot with a leafy canopy overhead that blocked out a lot of sunlight, and I had three Profoto B1s to fill my scene out. One light with a reflector filled in the backdrop of trees, one lit the sole tree in the foreground, and a gridded beauty dish from above lit Jon- arguably the one light in the shot you’re really aware of.
