Help with shooting inside a hair salon
Mar 4, 2008

I've been asked by a friend to shoot her and two other ladies inside their hair salon as a promotional photo to be put in a small local paper. Although her request was "just a headshot of the three of us", I would love to do something creative and more environmental. My lighting gear includes two AlienBee B800's, large softboxes and the 42" reflector, although I would like my gear and setup time to be minimal. No hotshoe flash. The interior of the hair salon has a flood of flourescent lights, lot of windows but it will be night time.

My initial thought was to bring one B800 on a stand, just bare with 7" reflector and bounce off a side wall or the wall behind me. I would pose them maybe around one of the work stations or the front desk.

Any other lighting ideas or examples you can share of something similar?

Thanks for your inspiration.

Gene
