Hi everyone,

I want to do a simple yet cool shoot this weekend and I sort of need to get this lighting/camera effect: Sample Picture

Jam that is not a simple shot... there are at least 3 light sources there.

Hi Steve,

Yes I am aware but I am willing to figure that out as long as I can get some pointers or theories as to how they did this shot.

I'm very familiar with my camera.

THANKS AGAIN STEVE

Looks like on light camera right straight off the side of she subject. Looks like a second light camera left, maybe 45 degrees between camera and subject, feathered to skim the back part of his face and head to leave shadow on the front of his face. I'd bet a gobo camera left as well to help control the light.

I'm not seeing a third light but it could be there.

This is not a simple set up that someone with no studio lighting experience could pull off easily.
