Peter Kolonia has just published an impressive how-to piece on featuring the photography of portrait shooter Carol Weinberg. Wanting to shoot something special for her new site, Weinberg wound up with a dramatic portrait featuring halo lighting.

A Profoto Pro Head was utilized from behind to create the halo effect. The main light was provided by a Profoto Softbox RFi 5′ Octa. A Profoto Pro-7A pack powered both lights.

The story covers how the halo shot came about, and what Weinberg had to deal with to make it work. Kolonia covers other tips on beauty lighting by Weinberg, and provides the most helpful, not to mention coolest lighting diagram (by Kris Holland at Mafic Studios) we’ve seen.

Don’t miss the full article, and don’t forget to check out more of Weinberg’s work at her site.
