A client of mine recently started letting me borrow his studio and lighting gear to experiment with, and it's been a really fun experience and I've been learning a lot. I got my friend Madison to model for me for the first of what I hope to be many shoots in this studio. I have a limited amount of time in the studio because there are other photographers who rent here, so a lot of time is spent trying to figure things out,, and I don't get as many shots as I'd like. I had a great internship a couple years ago that taught me a lot about lighting, but I was never tasked with handling the lighting gear so I didn't learn a whole lot about assembling things. Since I primarily shoot in natural/available light, a lot of the aspects of studio lighting are unfamiliar to me. I tried using some color gels as well for this shoot, but they were a little more difficult to understand than I had anticipated, and I don't feel like I got any keepers from that. I plan to keep trying on that though. I did however get some shots that I really like from a single light setup though.

The lighting was a Profoto D1 Air 500w in a 47" zeppelin parabolic softbox.
EOS 5D
85mm @ f/4.5
1/125th sec
ISO 125

Madison also requested a shot that shows off the new gold lettering on the tins of his own brand of mustache wax.
Same camera settings.

It is always so much fun learning something new! :)
#2 Is that strongest looking one to me. It would be an incredible advertising photo!
I also really like the photo of the two of you.

Great photos (as usual ;) ). Madison is a great subject. It looks like you have a way to go to catch up with him.

Really nicely done Dan. I'm not sure they have the same "whoah" factor that your natural light work typically does, but they're a damn bit better than a large portion of studio work I've seen from other photographers. Well executed, but I still think your forte is natural light :)

Excellent work as always. Good job on the studio lighting. I pretty much think that photographers who understand well natural light usually do wonders in studio too. You keep it simple and definitively less is often more!
