Does your Strobist shoot look like this?0

Another photograph I needed to get out of my head. Inspired by a winner at the BP portrait awards and realised with the help of everyone you see in the picture (except James! Who was genuinely asleep…). I have been to a dozen Strobist photoshoots and often wondered if the photoshoot would make a more interesting picture than the ostensible subject. It is also quite strange to be surrounded by large & obscure pieces of lighting equipment, often at quite close quarters, while someone points a merciless piece of digital recording equipment at you. Here I put my camera on a tripod and triggered it from the camera you see in my hands. Some more work could be done to make the light more ‘motivated’ and find excuses for the beauty dish on the changing are and the orange gelled strobe on James. The studio you see belongs to Scott Hunter (http://www.shot2stun.com/) and was extremely well equipped including the beer you see on the floor and a lovely boomed & gridded softbox.
