The shoot took place in the basement TRX Suspension Weight Training gym underneath the main boxing ring as the low purple LED lighting was the perfect backdrop for mixing in some photo-studio lighting. Using a couple of portable Profoto B1X’s on a measured low setting gave the perfect natural mixed lighting feel. Keeping the subject cleanly lit and the background atmospheric.
Mixing different light sources can be an art. This is typically mixing flash lighting with daylight like the Golf Punk magazine shoots in Spain. Or in a studio mixing continuous tungsten lighting with flash lighting like the adidas F50 campaign.
