Earlier this year, Stockholm-based photographer Gordon Andersson created a series of moving (literally moving) portraits with the help of our continuous light source ProDaylight 400 Air. In case you missed them, the videos are still available here.
Now, Gordon is back with another video and a new series of portraits, shot with three ProTungsten units, an HR Lantern and two HR Softbox 3×4′ RF.

Gordon describes how he lit his dancer:

“The main light is a Profoto HR Lantern, a really interesting light modifier which spreads the light in a way so the top of her was lit throughout her movement but the light didn’t spill to the background. She began slightly behind it for maximal light in her face for the portrait part of the image. I also had a softbox to the left and maybe one from the right (I tried it but don’t know if was used in the final image) to light her up a little more when she danced to the sides. Those lights were pointed in a way so they wouldn’t hit the background and the right one even had had a grid for the same reason.”

You can read the rest of Gordon’s story here.
