Master Any Lighting Setup With The Help Of set.a.light 3D

Exotic Animals in the studio by Sandy Nicholson and Broncolor

Sandy Nicholson spends a day in the studio with some exotic animals for a new book project he's working on.


The photos were shot on a Phase One 645DF with an IQ160 digital back. Lighting consisted of four Broncolor Scoro A4S power packs, three Pulso G lights, and a Pulso Twin head. For the straight on shots, Sandy used a beauty dish overhead, with diffused standard reflector coming from below.

Two lights on the background rounded out the setup. For the shots from below, Sandy constructed a platform of Lexan connected to four light stands. A large Chimera softbox from overhead provides a backlit backdrop, with a beauty dish and standard reflector cross lighting from below, to avoid reflections in the Lexan surface. ( text via )
