the photo is of a local model and singer named julie, who's helping me out with a up coming photo shoot of mine . in the photo julie is prepped for a life cast im creating to sculpt over and then apply the gel prosthetic in the photo shoot.

since i dont have a light meter which is really import in studio photography and on location video film work ..lets just say i do a lot of improvising, jerry rigging up quick rigs and hope they dont burn the place up for the right effects ..luckily this one set up was just a 500 watt lowes special yellow work light as the key light angled down from 8 feet above and two $13.00 harbor freight 150 watt specials .which where used as quick filler.

the photos where just reference and for the model ,so i didnt spend any time with the light .no butterfly under the nose or any other classic effect with a key light and three or four accent lights ..not enough time and a bit to much for just a quick pic.

the lighting that im describing would be taught with in the first three months of any decent photography school or local arts/adult learning center. such as many high schools that help bored parents and teen .you pay a few bucks and you get a non accreted three month class tough by a local teacher of the art/program .


(if you buy any light from harbor freight ,always run them on a plug strip with a glowing on off switch and keep the light off till needed..)

this is also a non edit from the camera.
