Commercial Photography program SCCC, (Seattle Central Community College). This is the result of this year effort. The program gives me access to some seriously Pro level equipment, a whole class of excellent assistants and... some seriously talented and hipster looking subjects. Profoto strobe mounted on a Soflighter, high on a boom high on camera left. On camera ring flash for fill and screen on the right to block some the light from a very sunny Spring day. What I like in this shot? The triangular shape created by the shadows that nicely frames the subjects.

The rapid fall off is obtained by adding a grid and a diffuser. The second one uses a ring flash
as front fill light. The differences (softer light the first, punchier the second) are highlighted in post.
