Lighting Set up for Graham’s Milestone Shoots

For those that maybe curious about how I set up the shoot for Graham’s milestone pictures I created the diagram below to illustrate it. You can use this tool to create diagrams here:

I shoot these in our living room between all the furniture. So you do not need a big space to do this setup.

The only thing not pictured is the plaque I use to mark the month.

Thanks for reading!

Pictures of company executives that won awards for volunteer work or are being spotlighted for the volunteer work they do.

Being the second time I’ve done any photo work for my employer I was still a bit nervous again. Mainly because these people are at the top of the “food chain” where I work and the last thing I want to do is take a really bad picture of them.

The hardest thing to deal with was trying to deal with all the wood paneling casting a harsh yellow light from all angles.

I didn’t use any flash here and I wish I had to lighten up the shadows from the over head florescent lights in all the pictures.
