"Making Sets" was one of the takeaways from a recent tutorial by Clay Cook that was published by FStoppers. I had seen expensive sets that like Mark Seliger uses but I never could have that but Clay's tutorial showed me I can build my own so easily with just a few v-flats ! and I loved it, it gives a feeling of room and depth to the photo .
In this series my idea was to have most things in red! Got some some dresses from Zara and a roll of Red paper from the local camera store and wrapped up the v-flats in red paper ! so easy even for me that have technical difficulties changing a light bulb :D
For lighting I used two lights, Profoto B1s. One as a fill that is on a Profoto 5 foot Octo modifier and one as the main that is on a Profoto Deep Silver Umbrella XL with diffusion sock on as the main light. The reason I chose Silver as the main is because it gives more punch to the photo for its main light.
Camera Settings: Nikon D-810, Sigma ART 50mm, f 5.6, 1/125 s, ISO 100
