Hello everyone! It’s been awhile since we last posted a blog but I wanted to get in touch again and let you see a little bit of the fun projects we have been working on. If you aren’t aware I am a huge fan of Star Wars and have been thinking about doing a Star Wars themed shoot for a little over a year now. My daughter just turned four this year and is also turning into a Star Wars fan and loves dressing up as Rey.
With a little digging I was able to find a BB-8 Droid to use for the photoshoot, her costume was a markdown Halloween Rey costume and the lightsaber came from her Aunt as a Christmas gift.
The setup wasn’t to tricky at all, 2 Bowens 500w strobes were used. One on camera right as the main light, and the other on camera left as a fill with blue gels to create the lightsaber glow in camera instead of painting it in photoshop. All of the lights were triggered with pocket wizards!
If you have any questions or want to learn a little more about the behind the scenes feel free to drop us and email and we would love to share more with you!
