Picture of the Week - Week 4

Now that we have moved to a new place, I had to come up with a new "studio" here in the house to do portraits in. 

I really enjoyed the huge loft we had in our last place, but we unfortunately do not have that here. What we do have, however, are a couple of massive closets, with correspondingly massive doors that swing out nice and wide. The doors are probably about 8 feet tall and opening them up I have a nice, wide place to put my cross bar to hang backdrops on, creating something of a huge clam shell.

I decided that I would try some high-key portraits as a first shot. The lighting is done with three speedlights, one on each side shooting through an umbrella to light the backdrop, and a third in a smallish softbox to light the subject. Here are a couple of examples:
