Behind the Scene – US Sunglasses

Behind th

As I mentioned prior to the this post, the setup is very easy, it’s a 2 lights setup.
The first light is the available light. I first metered it so I could see at what level I would fight against it with my strobe. I hoped to get a relatively low aperture to be able to blur the background a little and fortunately it happened to go that way.

I have received many question about the way I set the flag : was it added in PS? Was it there ? Well, In this shot above, your questions are answered. And yes, the guy with the yellow T-shit, that’s me !

Another question I have received was : Why do you take the US-flag although you are French ? Well for 2 reasons. Number one – I love the time I have been lucky to spend there on vacation and number two – I love its graphic. The lines, the red, the stars. It’s more appealing that the French or Austrian’s flags. I think EU, UK (yes Pete!) or german offer more visual punch. Don’t look here for political orientations, there are none.


More to come !
