This is how we came across the beautiful images that Slovak photographer Alex Hajdu created for a Harley Davidson campaign. Alex was also kind enough to include a couple of lighting diagrams and a short text describing the shoot. Here is what he wrote:
“As you will see, the lighting set up for this project was really simple. In fact, I’m not a fan of complicated set ups. Apart from ambient light, I used 1 Pro-7b generator and 2 Pro-B heads. One head was equipped with 1 Softbox 2×3′ Octa, the other with a Zoom Reflector. I also had a white poly. Because I wanted to feel the flash in the pictures and get a darkened sky and background, I rated the camera to ISO 100, f4, 1/500.”
“In this first picture, I switched the generator to symmetric mode. I used the Softbox 2.3′ Octa for key light, and the Zoom Reflector as rim light. I also used the white poly board to bounce some light back from the key light.”
“I used almost the same lighting set up for the second image. The Pro-7b generator was once again switched to symmetric mode. The Softbox 2.3′ Octa was my key light, and the Zoom Reflector my rim light. The background is actually a montage, as I really wanted skyscraper scenery.”
Thanks for sharing your work, Alex. Keep it up!
