For his creativeLIVE broadcast, much loved portrait photographer Joey L. decided to try something he hadn’t done before, taking portraits of “arctic explorers” in a completely man-made, indoor blizzard.

On his blog, Joey details how he got the shot with behind the scenes pics, a lighting diagram, and some insight into his thought process. Although the shoot looks complicated, he used 5 Pro-B Heads, 3 Pro-8a packs, and a variety of lighting modifiers, he explains how every piece has its place.

He says, “Even with a photo as ‘complex’ as these blizzard portraits, when you break it down piece by piece, light by light, and effect by effect, it becomes quite simple. As I say in the creativeLIVE broadcast, if you can fully understand the way one light is affecting your image, it’s likely that you can understand one million lights.”
