“I shot this at the end of April 2014 in Cocoa, Florida. This was taken just after 10 A.M. so the sun was slightly less difficult to deal with, much to my relief. The setup was pretty simple, two lights were used. The key light is an Einstein 640 with a 45 degree reflector at camera left and is slightly hidden by the left edge of the tree. I had it on a stand probably eight feet high and aimed up a reasonable amount in order to concentrate the light on the upper portion of the wall where James is hitting. The backlight is another Einstein with the same reflector about ten feet out of the frame at camera right. In order to avoid the dreaded double-shadow on the wall caused by using multiple lights, I placed the light in a doorway and feathered it slightly away from the wall. This gets the light slightly more off-axis and still gives a good highlight on James.
