Professional Studio Lighting
We use the Alien Bees B800's. They are self-contained studio flash units which produce 320 true watts per second and 800 effective watts per second of power. The Alien Bee B800 outputs 14,000 lumens per second. It is adjustable from full down to 1/32nd of the total power, in whole f-stop increments and everywhere in-between. The Alien Bees B800 are built for 'bang-bang' shooting. With a speed recycle to full power in just 1 second, you will never need to wait for your next shot.
Our 32"x40" softboxes provide a soft, diffused output that evenly covers the subject with a gorgeous wash of light. Each box has a highly-reflective silver lining to bounce the light before it's diffused through the front panel for a soft, even spread of light. Additionally it has a second internal baffle for double diffusion to create even softer results.
For our backdrops, we use Savage Universal's Photowide and Widetone seamless background papers. They are a high quality, fine tooth non-reflecting surface which has been used by professional photographers for fifty-five years. The Widetone comes in lengths of 26", 53" and 107". The Photowide is 140" across. Always in stock are pure white, black and thunder gray of the Photowide. upon request we can provide any of the following backgrounds. Backdrop colors (PDF)
A graphics workstation is provided to assist with the shoot. If shooting digital, it allows the option to temporarily store your photos for creating DVD's.
Great photos come when you are comfortable with both your photographer
and environment. We have many techniques to help relax models and make
them feel at home.
