Robert Gallagher Shoots Matt Kemp for Forbes Magazine

Robert Gallagher knows his way around commercial photography. On this assignment, he puts Matt Kemp, a baseball player for the Dodgers, in front of the camera to shoot the cover of Forbes Magazine. As can be seen in the video, the studio set up includes 4 different lights. With a few assistants, Robert also manages to snag a one-light shot in the tunnel heading out to the field.

Really cool little BTS. wonder, what was that little square reflector being held in the tunnel. it looked thicker than just a mini reflector. Maybe a LED bank?

I think it was one of this guys:

I use them mainly for video.. but it seemed that he used it also in the studio

Cool bts video. So much can be gathered here in his setups. I love the simplicity of the lighting. As Peter Hurley has said, the expressions by the subject, are key. The quality of that light panel at the end, was cool too.
