Hanging out in the hot, hot sun on Warped Tour 2010, Chris and I met up with electro-pop wiz kid Grant Harris – AKA the brainchild of Breathe Electric – slapped a Nooka watch on him, and snapped these portraits.
These shots of Grant of Breathe Electric were lit with a Profoto AcuteB head powered by a Profoto AcuteB 600R Battery Pack. We also used a pair of Nikon SB-900s bare on either side of Grant for a hint of accent lighting.
- Profoto AcuteB 600 w/s Head
- Profoto AcuteB 600R Battery Pack
- 3-foot Creative Light Octabox
- Nikon D3
- Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
- Nikon SB-900 Speedlight (2x)
- Pocketwizard Plus II (3x)
- 42″ Photoflex reflector
For the vertical shot, we also used a silver 42″ Photoflex reflector to fill in Grant from camera left, which did a nice job at opening up shadows on his torso and providing a nice evenness to help him pop off the background.
Shout out to Grant and his tour manager for being super nice, as well as to the folks at Nooka for providing product. If you like Grant's watch, he's wearing a Nooka Zub Zoo in silver. The perfect watch for an electro pop wiz? I think so.
For this set with Breathe Electric, the Profoto pack and the 3-foot octabox were the perfect match to compliment the bright day and put out some beautiful light on Grant.
