2/2 #Behindthescenes and Finished image of @nomadcuff. Lit with #Profoto heads  in a #Elinchrom #Rotalux 74" #octabox from the side, a 1x6 on super low if it was even on from behind and magnum reflector bounced off of the ceiling (I can't really tell if his hair is illumated by the stip or light bouncing off the ceiling, my bad. Sorry I forgot!). I also bought a blue #MoleRichardson 407 then discovered it had been converted to a lamp! So I used a real 407 to back it up! All of which was captured on a #GravityBackdrops. #canon1dxmarkii #famousbtsmag #portraitmood #johngressmedia #portraitphotography #pursuitofportraits #photostudio #malemodels #studiophotography #strobist #kdpeoplegallery #portraitfestival #blackmodel #chicagophotographer #johngressmedia #blackmodels #endlessfaces #chicagomodel #flashphotography #chicagomodels #profotoglobal #profotousa #iso1200

3/3 The new studio is working out great! Here's the first image from first photoshoot in the new space. @NomadCuff lives out his hoop dreams! He's frozen in time by my #Profoto Pro6 Freeze packs with three heads and 3 #ProfotoD1 500 airs. I had the pro heads in the #softbox's and the D1s on the background but the main light Was next to the 74" #Elinchrom #Rotalux indirect #octabox which I was using as a fill. So what was the main light? I used a D1 at full power In #profotomagnum but I scrimed it with #matthewsgrip double net flag / rag because I wanted to cut the light 1.2 stops and the D1 has its shortest duration at full power. #fitnessmodel #behindthescenes #johngressmedia #fitnessphotography #BMGNY #kdpeoplegallery #portraitfestival #blackmodel #chicagophotographer #blackmodels #strobist #fstoppers #chicagomodel #johngressmedia  #flashphotography #chicagomodels #famousbtsmag #profotoglobal #studioportrait #studioportraits #profotousa #iso1200

1/3 The new studio is working out great! Here's the first #behindthescenes from the first photoshoot in the new space. @NomadCuff shows me what it would look like if he won the NBA finals! He's frozen in time by my #Profoto Pro6 Freeze packs with three heads and 3 #ProfotoD1 500 airs. I had the pro heads in the #softbox's and the D1s on the background but the main light was is hidden behind the 74" #Elinchrom #Rotalux indirect #octabox which I was using as a fill. So what was the main light? I used a D1 at full power In #magnumreflector but I scrimed it with #matthewsgrip double net flag / rag because I wanted to cut the light 1.2 stops and the D1 has its shortest duration at full power. In the interest of full disclosure, he's about 4' (1.2m) closer to the background in the BTS than he was when I took the real images.  #fitnessmodel #johngressmedia #fitnessphotography #BMGNY #kdpeoplegallery #portraitfestival #blackmodel #chicagophotographer #blackmodels #strobist #fstoppers #chicagomodel #johngressmedia  #flashphotography #chicagomodels #famousbtsmag #profotoglobal #studioportrait #studioportraits #profotousa #iso1200 📸 by @marcusmatteo
