Sports portrait shoot

 

Introduction

Dudley college needed some images to use in the marketing material for next year and I was asked to provide some sports portraits.

Studio setup

We just received a brand new white vinyl background so that was put straight into service combined with a pretty standard three light setup. Large softbox, background light and hairlight. This produces some very good results but the images are quite generic and we wanted them to be more dynamic.

The background was swapped to black and the lights moved to either side of the subject to produce rim lighting. The large softbox remained as the key light. The result was very dynamic really making the images pop.

Group Shots

As there were students from amny different sports I didn't want to do the typical team pose. The location was on the steps next to the cafe, again, The normal location would be in a gym or sportshall but I wanted it to look and feel different.
