Haris Therapis is a film director and the owner of UnitrustMedia.
The shot was performed to an abandoned warehouse. Our aim was to create an underground mood that express Haris personality and the style of his work. The setup was quite simple actually:
1. Ambient light was underexposed by 2 stops.
2. An SB900 speedlight was placed above the model’s heat and fired (iTTL mode) through a softbox, in order to create some dramatic lighting.
3. The background was very dull (a white & grey old wall) so a second SB900 speedlight was placed behind the armchair and fired (Manual mode) through a red filter gel.
Both speedlights were fired by using an SU800 infrared controller.
