3 Light High Key Headshot

Nikon D750, Nikon 85mm ƒ/1.8G, ISO 100, ƒ/5.6, 1/80

Keep your setup simple and concentrate on expressions is my suggestion. Here is my setup for this photo above.

Here is the gear that I am using for the photo.

  • 3 – Alienbee B1600
  • Paul Buff – White High Output Beauty Dish
  • Lastolite Triflector kit silver/gold
  • Collapsible Background – 5 x 7′ (Black/White)
  • Nikon D750
  • Nikon 85mm ƒ/1.8G

In my basement I have a setup that is similar and the only difference is I have a hair light mounted in the ceiling.

I am shooting on the lowest power setting possible for all the lights.

Works well for men as well.
