How I Got the Shot | Sal Cincotta

LIGHTING // PROFOTO B10 WITH BEAUTY DISH

We had a Profoto B10 that was the perfect solution for this shot. I needed a light that would have enough power to fill and completely illuminate my subject’s face. Keep in mind, I could have shot this with natural light, but I would have blown out the sky in the background and lost all that depth and color. So, it was very important the flash had enough power. Now, of course, we needed to soften the light and control it a bit. That’s where the Beauty Dish comes into play. It’s a small form factor, easy to work with and manipulate which is incredibly important when you are on top of a building on top of a Ferris wheel.
