We love when our high school seniors request some shots a little outside of the box. It allows us to get our creative juices flowing and really explore new and exciting shots!  Selena is a High School senior in Indianapolis and is apart of several of her school’s musicals and plays. She has a passion to continue on in theatre once she graduates.  When she asked for some shots at the Indiana Repertory Theatre in Downtown Indianapolis we were so excited! Here is a preview of what we shot that day!

Selena Webb Senior Preview-0001

This shot was accomplished with three off camera speedlights. Each speedlight was connected to a PocketWizard TT5. On camera I had a PocketWizard Flex TT1 as well as the AC3 adapter to control the power of my flashes. I started with two sb-900’s up in the balcony set to Manual Power at Full (1/1) power aimed directly at my subject. I then set an sb-910 speedlight on the stage floor about 5 feet in front of my subject set to Manual Power at 1/32 power to help better define by subjects silhouette. It took about 5 – 10 minutes to get the lighting setup.

My camera settings were:
Nikon D4
Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8 at 24mm
F/16 (To accomplish the starburst from the speedlights in the balcony)
ISO 3200
WB 5200

Here is a diagram to help illustrate the shot for you.
