Dennis Welsh is a photographer who seldom takes his pictures in a dark and calm studio. But when he does, he uses Profoto lights to take wonderful pictures such as this.
This image is part of a series Dennis did for sports and outdoor apparel company Hind.
“Each year this client wants to make a different statement with the pictures, this time mixing outdoor settings with studio shots, the latter focusing more attention on the product,” says Dennis in a recent interview for Shutterbug. “In post, we drew the color out of everything except the clothing.” The lighting Welsh used was Profoto, with a Softlight Reflector to illuminate the face. There were also a pair of strobes on the background.”
