©Thomas Chadwick has an insightful piece by Peter Kolonia on how photographer Thomas Chadwick shot a large moody alley to create a classic music video vibe. Chadwick composited eight exposures to achieve his final image.

A Profoto Pro-7b pack and a Pro-7B Head with a Profoto 7-inch Grid Reflector was used to backlight each dancer. A Profoto Softlight Reflector and another 7b head and pack were used for frontlighting, according to Kolonia. The article is replete with a comprehensive gear list and a detailed lighting diagram. Don’t miss it!
