When Profoto contacted Portland-based fashion photographer Rob Werlinger about doing a blog post for them, he pulled out all the stops. "The concept revolved around metallics and you can see them used prominently in the wardrobe, makeup, and also reflected in the mood and emotion of the model,” writes Rob. “Since we were using the 'Profoto Pro-8a packs' that feature action-stopping short flash duration times, I wanted to bring in a strong element of motion as well.”
The first thing you'll notice as the shoot gets going is the number of lights Rob has set up for these images. Two beauty dishes for hair and highlights, two softboxes to keep the background white and a large parabolic for fill. Things move around a bit and some others may have snuck in or out...but that's the basic setup.
