On August 27, Profoto and photographer Jared Platt will host a free webinar on how to build up a complex lighting setup indoors . To get you in the mood for the webinar, Jared has written an article on the topic. Enjoy!

In the past few blog posts, I have discussed lighting outdoors, on location. Each time I arrive in a location, I am imediately looking for the existing light to set the mood of the shot, which means I am always scouting out the best locations and choosing the optimal time for the perfect direction and quality of light. While the process changes a bit on an indoor shoot (where I am manufacturing all of the light), the basic concepts don’t change all that much.

In our next webinar, we will discuss a shoot that occurred in a boxing ring in a hip old warehouse/gym/bar in Phoenix, Az, called The Duce. We chose this location for the shoot because it would require us to manufacture the light for the entire scene. While this required more lights and more set up, the principles of lighting the scene are no different than if we we’re outside. Instead of arriving on location and looking for the existing light, I arrived on location to a poorly lit warehouse and imagined the existing light in my mind and then reproduced it with one B1 off-camera flash and the appropriate Light Shaping Tools.

This first light sets the mood for the photograph, just like the sun’s existing light sets the mood and lighting direction on an outdoor shoot, only now we completely control our “sun.” Once the mood is set by our first light, we begin to build in the other lights one at a time to achieve the final finished image.

On this shoot, we are using four Profoto B1 off-camera flashes in manual mode.

Our next webinar, titled Dramatic Night Portraits, will be broadcasted on June 18. Join us and photographer Jared Platt as we bring two B1 off-camera flashes and a selection of Light Shaping Tools into the night to take some dramatic portraits of piano rock star Kevin Burdick.

“Without the use of the sun, just two lights can be a little tricky to get the shot just right,” says Jared. “But I wanted to keep our gear limited to what we could carry between my assistant and myself. So we loaded up with the B1 Location Kit, a few stands and some Light Shaping Tools and headed out into the night.

Join us on June 18 at 7PM CET (June 18 at 10AM Los Angeles, 1PM New York, 6PM London, 7PM Paris // June 19 at 1AM Beijing, 2AM Tokyo, 3AM Sydney) to learn how he got his shots.
