These are my neighbors. They came over to get some nice family photographs of themselves and their two girls to use for a Christmas card shot. After shooting away at the girls, I had the whole family join in for this family portrait. I used standard seamless white paper for the background and a Canon 580EXII to illuminate it. The key lighting was provided by a single AlienBees AB800 shot through a large octabox. Fill light is handled by a reflector to the camera’s right. The lights were all triggered by Paul C. Buff CyberSync’s.
