  • Hey fellow photographer, how's it going?

  • I'm Michael Zelbel

  • Today I've got a simple lighting setup for you

  • which enables you to turn any bedroom into

  • your own photo studio for boudoir photography.

  • Why that?

  • Well, because currently it's winter holliday season.

  • Outside it's blistering cold and

  • I'm really glad that our location for today

  • is a warm and cozy bedroom.

  • Ain't that good?

  • My initial idea for todays video was quite different.

  • I actually wanted to make a "making of" video of a photo shoot.

  • A "making of" of the shoot that

  • you see right now on your screen.

  • That is a photo shoot that I made for an ebook.

  • I published that eBook a couple of days ago.

  • But, you know, having such a "making of" video is nice,

  • I can put it onto my blog or

  • upload it to my social networks, but then again,

  • what is the use for you?

  • You know, what is the use for the viewer

  • if you see a "making of" video?

  • No benefit!

  • That is, why I now completely changed my mind

  • and I thought: "No, let's take one lighting setup

  • out of this ebook and explain that lighting setup".

  • Because then you have got something

  • which you can use in your photography,

  • which you can replicate and which you can try out

  • right today in your own bedroom or tomorrow,

  • in a hotel bedroom. It's quite easy.

  • So let's jump into that lighting setup

  • and I am going to explain it.

  • So, the fundamental thing is a bed.

  • Over here we have got a king-sized bed, 2x2meters.

  • And shooting such a bed is nice,

  • but can be quite boring at times,

  • that's why we should add a model.

  • We can pose the model in any way, shape or form on the bed,

  • but the main point is, we need some light

  • in order to see the model on the photograph.

  • That's why we add a speedlight over here at the side.

  • I used a strong speedlight, guide number 58,

  • but I dialed the power way down to 1/32nd of it's power

  • because the bedroom was quite small

  • and got white walls so I don't need so much light actually

  • I did let it go through a big shoot-through umbrella

  • so that the light is nice and smooth and soft

  • and I positioned the umbrella just above the bed,

  • so that the light is coming from a quite low angle

  • making all the folds in the bedsheet quite 3-dimensional.

  • The camera is positioned exactly oposite

  • at the other corner of the bed.

  • The settings are, well, most of them quite standard

  • 1/200s, f2.8 for shallow depth of field, ISO100

  • but I dialed up the white balance to 10000 Kelvin

  • Why? Because the speedlight is delivering

  • very blue-ish, daylight-quality light of roughly 5800 Kelvin,

  • but I wanted to turn the thing

  • into a very warm and cozy scene, quite yellow-ish scene,

  • that is why I dialed up the white balance in camera,

  • so that the stuff comes out of camera quite yellow-ish

  • just like it would be Tungsten light, or even warmer.

  • This is one little trick, but wait there's more...

  • We have got another trick and that's a good one:

  • we add a second speedlight for much more punch.

  • A second speedlight is over there.

  • It's not quite as strong: guide number 43.

  • It's also dialed down to 1/32nd of it's power.

  • It's going through a lamp shade, a lamp shade of a bedside lamp.

  • Actually, the speedlight is inside the lamp,

  • so when you see the lamp in the photograph,

  • (the camera is shooting right towards the lamp)

  • when you see it, it looks like the lamp is glowing

  • but what you actually see is the speedlight

  • going off inside the lamp.

  • That gives the photos quite a bit of punch

  • and it's very easy to do. Just take a lamp shade,

  • put a speedlight inside and there you go,

  • there you got your punch. That's all it takes.

  • So, it's not so much gear, two speedlights,

  • a lightstand, one umbrella. I think that is somthing

  • that you can easily take with you, for instance

  • into a hotel room when you travel.

  • But you can also try it out at home.

  • Because it's working in very small bedrooms

  • you can have the tiniest and an ugly bed

  • but with that sort of lighting, you know, it will pop.

  • You can iluminate just a piece of the room

  • and it will be just fine. So go try it out!

  • Tell me how it worked for you.

  • Drop a comment under the video

  • and come back next Thursday.

  • Until then I wish you good light!

Hey fellow photographer, how's it going?
