How to light a scientist…

How to light a scientist… or at least someone who pretends so ;-)

I used:

  • a white wall
  • one green-gelled Elinchrom reflector with flags, camera left, angled, set at minimum (1)
  • one red-gelled Elinchrom reflector with flags, camera left, pointing at the subject, set at minimum (1)
  • one gridded beauty dish, Elinchrom, set at minimum, camera-right, lighting the hands only with feathered light

I used a Fujifilm X-T1 camera, the XF 35mm f/1.4 lens wide open, a Nikon polarizer (to reduce the intensity of light). Here is the result.

Shallow focus on the tube and part of the hands only.
