HOME SWEET HOME! Worcester, Ma at The Palladium! woo!
for todays shoot, i set up a dish as a main - but didnt boom it - just put it back a bit as a front light - then used two bare parabolic rims behind them - left and right - pointed to their back to not only cut out most of the second stage area around them, but to separate them from it and make them pop out a bit with a halo of light around them.
These were shot at F8 ISO100 160th on the Canon 1DS Mii, 24-70 2.8 L lens.
One thing I did to make the shot less bland was tilting the axis, meaning, I didnt shot it straight on - i tilted my camera left and right to get a more interesting shot, and that technique can either help or completely destroy an image... try it sometime!
