The man behind the lens

Yet, another self portrait, showing the man behind the lens. This image was taken by using 2 speedlights and a white wall.

There is one speedlight illuminating the wall behind me, zoomed out to its widest setting.

Another speedlight was inside a 21″ softbox on camera left and up, illuminating me from top down.

To achieve the deep blue wall colour, the speedlight illuminating the wall was gelled using a full CTB gel. To accentuate it further, the speedlight in the softbox was gelled using a full CTO gel and the white balance was corrected to almost neutral. This effectively turned everything blue except the subject being lit by the CTO’d speedlight.
