Time for an updated self portrait


It’s time to update my self portrait. It looks like the beard is going to stay awhile, so here goes.

This portrait was shot with a three-light setup. The main light was a 24″x36″ softbox positioned camera left . There was a large white reflector just outside of the frame camera right. I also had two small reflector umbrellas on either side as hair/kicker lights. I used a radio remote to trigger the camera, the camera was on a 2-second delay self timer so I had time to press the trigger, drop it and then the camera would fire.

And just to prove that this was a true self-portrait and nobody else was taking the photo, check out this actual setup shot:
